pear grafts
 

Scion from old Cutler Farm on Advent Rd., bearing pear tree. Maybe planted 1940s/50s, likely Bartlett, yellow large pear, good flavor.



2021 - Looking good, healthy, slow but steady growth.


2020 - Lost '19 graft to fireblight on badly FB'd chokepear.

Had cut scion from chokepear graft late winter. Bench root grafted it 4/25 on '18 OikosEcos stock. Wrap only w/ parafilm, plant in pail of potting soil/old sawdust/sand/DE. By chimney. 5/13 planted out, south of Tolman. Top bud small leaf, next green, 3rd some green, rest dormant. Buried graft 6", top 2 buds above ground. Grew well, ^20" by September. Healthy.


2019 - Stacey graft didn't take. Chokepear graft grew well - 18" top, 4" side. Cut scion late winter to graft nearby '20.


2018 - Cut scions June 2 - grafted on Brooks' pear then also leftovers on (1) chokepear, and (2) on Stacey
