Ubileen Pear

Have several small ubileen pears. My largest one is 3 feet after several years in very poor soil. It was a mistake putting these on ohxf333. Anyone else growing this variety?

I just grafted it over this year, but I still have a couple branches of it. The few people growing it were having problems ripening it.


That’s strange- it is a very vigourous variety for me. I’ve got one on quince (with a different variety as interstem) and another on OHxF87 and both shot up quickly.

On the negative, I’m one of the people who has trouble figuring out when they are ripe. They are very early, but either under ripe (and not enough brix) or rotten.

It’s good that you reminded me about it- I pruned out a lot of it (but not all) on the quince, but I’ve been meaning to do the same on the other tree. But I need to consult my records first, as there are about 10 varieties on there and I need to make sure I know what is what.
