Description

New Product!

Two different pears for the space of one! Grafted onto each tree you’ll get the Starking® Hardy Giant™ Asian pear variety and the Anjou pear, a European variety. Both produce sweet, outstanding dessert pears. No need to plant a separate tree for pollination: they’ll cross-pollinate one another to produce both varieties of fruit on one tree! Ripens in September. Self-pollinating.

My kids like both varieties and the self pollenation helps. Will see how long it takes them to become fruitful

I love Asian pears and better to buy a 2-in-1 self pollinator than two separate pear trees with the space I have.

Wanted pears, but Bartlett Pear trees are notoriously weak, so opted for this pairing instead.

Does this come with a single or double main leader? I'm interested in growing it as a 4 tier espalier. (as well as the Bartlett/Crimson Red combo). Would these trees allow me to do that?
Bob M on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The multi-graft trees will have two central leaders as each variety will be on its own trunk. If you wish each variety to fruit, then you'll need to keep both central leaders. I hope this helps!
Is this variety disease resistant?
Bubbles L on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree is more resistant to issues like leaf spot; however, it may still have some susceptibility to other issues like fire blight, since the Anjou variety that is grafted onto this tree is not particularly resistant.
How come they pollinate each other? One is Asian and the other is European?
Salmi on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They will pollinate one another because they are of the same species, just different varieties, i.e., they are still both pears with a similar bloom time.
