This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall-Winter. Frankendorf, Germany.
Very good tough-skinned storage pear—will keep until April in the root cellar. Greenish-mottled medium-small pear-shaped fruit with some russet splashes or dots. Coarse flesh with a good flavor. Very hard off the tree; don’t begin to eat them until a month after picking.
Years ago this nameless winter pear found its way from the roadside near Frankendorf to Unity, ME. The name came later, courtesy of grower Howard Wulf who calls it “the latest-keeping pear I’ve ever seen.” Sturdy adaptable hardy precocious tree. Recommended for those who want pears into January. Z4.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 19, 2021, for shipment around March 15.
We sell scions (scionwood) in two ways. Each single 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees, and comes with a small paper ID label. Scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet) will usually graft about 6 or 8 trees from one foot of scionwood. You can graft right away or store it for later use. Stored properly, it will keep quite well for several weeks.
Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
