FWIW, some years ago Oregon State U. evaluated a bunch of red sports of 
various varieties, such as the Red Clapps, and all of them were lower 
in vigor and less productive than the normal, uncolored strains.   I 
tried a few red sports and found pretty much the same thing.  It's 
unclear if varieties actually bred for red color would have better 
productivity.  There has surely been work on that in the intervening 
years if someone knows of it.

   Was wondering if someone would be willing to send me a scion or 2
from Kalle Red pear or also known as Red Clapps.  I am interested in
any red varieties to graft as I have two at this time and they are
Red Anjou and Bartlett Red Sensation.   I have about 40 varieties to
swap from or else willing to cover any costs etc.
Please send me a note off line and I will E-mail you my list.  Thanks
