So I found, what appeared to be a thorny pear tree and tried to graft Asian pears on it last year, when that failed (late on and first year grafting) I tried an apple scion and it took.
So this year I tried again and went crazy with it.
The grafts on it are:
Cripps Pink apple
Winner Banana apple
Apple-Pear Cross (That’s the name)
Clara Frijs pear
2 Asian pears of unknown varieties.
They’re growing great… it had straight thorns on all the 1" and under branches, I’m guessing its a rootstock or decorative seedling… but I don’t know what.
There’s a thorny crabapple that has bark and thorns like it not far away, but this one has never produced fruit or flowers.
