[NAFEX] Wild(?) pear question

There are low-chill seedlings of calleryana---and high chill strains that grow in Kansas. It all depends............. My first thought was of calleryana, although my second thought was of the ussuriensis---which I couldn't recall the name at the time. Ussuriensis doesn't perform as well here as calleryana. I have Ya Li and Tsu Li on ussuriensis. They are decidedly dwarfer than Ya Li on calleryana.

No, the one thing I read every time about calleryana is that it's NOT hardy as a rootstock. That leaves P. ussuriensis as the most likely candidate. Okolo is a ussuriensis offspring that may be hardy enough for you, from Dr. Hansen's work I think. I didn't get good takes from my grafts of that one, but if you'll look at the Corvallis site, they have a list of hardy pears. You'll want only the very hardiest. You can call for nominations right here. Donna
