*PICKUP ONLY*

Over the years we have grafted and grown thousands of trees for our own farm, and now we have a limited quantity available for you too!   Ready to plant and begin bearing as early as next year, and reach full production of 1/2 to 1 bu. in 4 years with proper care.   These pears are semi-dwarf, early bearing, highly productive and require some support, either a stake, trellis, or espalier on a wall.   They can be easily trained to 10- 12 feet tall, or allowed to grow to 20 feet or so.  These are one year trees that were given the best conditions and most varieties are branched and 3-5 feet tall with good strong roots, potted up with feeder roots intact.  We transplant our own pear trees at this age, and they frequently top the 8 foot trellis the first season and make a few fruit in two years.  Plant two varieties for best fruit set. 

These are like a big Seckel, just as sweet.   A little smaller than a Bartlett, bronze with a red blush.  October.  This variety is naturally more dwarfed and slower growing.

If you purchase trees we will assume you will pick them up on Saturday at the Ithaca Farmers Market unless you request to pick them up at the farm.  We are not set up to ship plants, sorry!
