Hey everyone. I ran across an old pear tree this spring and noticed it had a few blossoms. I went back to it this weekend and found about a dozen or so pears on the tree, most with bird pecks.
The tree is covered in poison ivy I believe. The tree did have some bee growth this year, but it’s sure past it’s prime. I will get some scion wood at the end of winter.
Few questions for those with the knowledge of these things which I am thankful that so many share)
Any guess as to the cultivar? It’s a pretty big tree as far as trunk diameter goes. Home site is from 1940 in VA.
I noticed a few seedling or root sprout pears around the tree, maybe 10 feet from the trunk. Could these be root sprouts? We do have callery pears, but the immediate area doesn’t have any.
