But I am getting pear trees. Not sure if many of you remember my Perry from two years ago, or the Perry Jack from last year, but we are cloning the pear tree from whence they came! OK, maybe not cloning....but grafting the tree to semi-dwarf rootstock. Seems this 100+ year old pear tree in SW Iowa is destined to be cut down by the new oners. My mother, an experienced "grafter" is going to graft ten trees, 5 will stay in Iowa, 5 are coming down to me plus a few "root suckers" or seedlings from the tree. Its apperently self fertile (no other pear trees for several blocks), produces abundently, and are great eating pears, not to mention great common perry pears. I'm going to get a couple extra, if someone wants one, let me know.
