Winter Nelis  http://www.ars-grin.gov/ars/PacWest/Corvallis/ncgr/pony.html  Is an outstanding winter pear, though the tree is awful.  Spindly, witches broom growth habit, and terrible tendency to get sooty mold on foliage and fruit.

I'm interested in it because it is reported to be an excellent winter pear and that it stores well in home conditions. Saving an old variety is a bonus.

It is quite difficult to search for it online because "Lawrence" is mentioned in other contexts.

Did anybody have experience with it?

Does anybody know a source of grafted Lawrence pears?

The Corvallis repository has it:


If anybody has other suggestions for good winter pears that can be stored in home conditions, I'm all ears :-)

Thanks a lot!
