Hendre Huffcap Pear Scionwood


Hendre Huffcap Pear Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Sweet English perry pear. Also called Lumberscull. Probably originated near the villages of Bromsberrow and Haresfield in Gloucestershire, England, before 1900.

Sweet and astringent, with low acidity and low tannin. Perry-maker Charles Martell calls it “one of the very best vintage varieties of perry pear with all the most desirable orchard properties.” Small (2" or less) roundish fruit is yellowish-green, partly russeted and orange-blushed. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)

We sell scionwood in two ways:

  • By the stick: One 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees.
  • By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.

You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
