Here’s our Warren Pear that arrived bareroot 5 days ago from Trees of Antiquity. I’m not ready to plant it at its new location but the daytime temperatures in the 50-60°F range will cause it to start budding soon. So I’ve potted it in this #15 tub, using 1 part all-purpose sand and 2 parts Kelloggs Patio Mix by volume plus about a half inch of 1/4" Sequoia Orchid Bark on top to slow down moisture evaporation from the soil.
Wow, instant Warren pears!

Thanks for the pearl. I sense a future ToA order.
I suggest you thin the fruitlets to one per cluster.
You will enjoy them very much! Everyone told me warren was delayed fruiting but that was not my experience either. Have had more trouble with magness being very delayed in fruiting than warren. Got pears off magness once or twice that tasted identical to warren but the crop was not as heavy. Normally i would think there was a mixup but i received 4 different sources of magness with the same results every time. In other locations people report the opposite. In my climate warren is very much worth growing.
