I planted this tree two years ago, and I am having trouble with the Red Sensation as it is far less vigorous of the two grafts. Basically it looks healthy but does not want to put out any new growth, whereas the Bartlett is very vigorous with multiple new branches each season, please advise what I can do to encourage the Red Sensation to put out new growth?
Laurie S on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Pruning does encourage new growth, so even if you prune just a little on the Red Sensation, it will help. Also, it's important to keep the more vigorous variety in balance with the less vigorous variety when you're growing multi-grafted trees. Try not to allow one to "overshadow" the other.

Stark custom-graft 2 in 1 pear
My little pear tree is now in its second summer. It has and is growing well. I planted it near a west-facing solid wooden fence. The tree receives adequate sunlight. The branching that I suppose is the Bartlett is much more vigorous than the Red Sensation but that, too, is healthy looking. This spring one set of blossoms formed on a "Bartlett" branch. Time will tell if chance pollination occurred from a neighbor's tree. Judging from the difference in vigorousness, I will espalier this tree now so that I can control each variety better and because I have limited space. Della

2 n 1 Pear
This is the second Spring season and it is doing well. Very healthy looking and good rapid growth so far. It did have a blossom or two in the early spring.

Hybrid pear tree
We received a pear tree from Stark Brothers last spring with detailed instructions in when and how to plant it. It thrived last year with many blooms. Even though we had a severe winter, the pear tree came back to life this spring with tombs of leaves and new growth. Every healthy plant. I would order again from them!

I bought this tree last summer. It's still young so it hasn't started fruiting yet, but it's growing wonderfully and the trunk is getting very thick

beautiful tree
My tree arrived last winter, dormant. It has leafed out well and is continuing to grow throughout the summer. It appears one variety of pear is on the top and the other variety is on the bottom as the graft is in the middle of the trunk. I'm not sure which variety is which, but the bottom leaves have a purplish/red hue so maybe this is the Red Sensation. The tree has a really beautiful shape and form. It has not produced any blooms yet.
