Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Pears are about as easy as apples to propagate. Grandpa recommends "chip" budding, which is easy to learn and highly successful. Since we cannot ship these early enough in the season, we do not recommend "bench grafting". You usually can start chip budding when your scionwood is mature and buds are developed and readily and easily cut and removed from your scion stick. Usually by August in most areas.

A Little History about OHxF® 333 Semi-Dwarf Pear Rootstock

The "OHxF" rootstocks are better named the "Old Home by Farmingdale" rootstocks, but that is a real mouthful. They have a very interesting history. The original "Old Home" tree and "Farmingdlae" trees were discovered in an Illinois orchard where they were sufferring no fire blight like the rest of the orchard. Prof. Reimer of Oregon State University took clones home and cross-bred them. Over a period of time, many people became interested in the progeny of these two trees, but a private nurseryman named Lyle Brooks really developed them into the rootstock that they are today.
