I was looking through my email the other day for a perry pear scion source for a friend with an orchard nearby and realized I had not shared the perry tree or scion info with anyone else. Carla with the NW Cider association sent me this email over a year ago. I’m not sure if Joe Beringer is selling perry trees currently though I imagine like with anyone you put in a call @ 425-508-0557 and wait until he has them. I have a phone only contact as shown in the email below. As you know from my other post that Carla’s organization has cider apple scion wood for only $2 per stick http://www.nwcider.com/scion-wood-for-sale/. It’s very high quality wood that I’ve used before.

They are all grafted onto Quince C with a Comice interstem, so these will be dwarf pear trees.
