Siberian Pear - Pyrus ussurensis
1-3 ft. Trees
Extremely hardy seedling pear with an astringent fruit that, although it is unpalatable, makes a delightful vinegar. The tree has thorns, is a vigorous grower, very hardy, and produces a profusion of white blossoms which open about a week before the apples. Used as a rootstock for Ussurensis-type pears. Bright orange-red Fall color.
