Default 4 in 1 Low Chill Pear

I have been looking for some other types of Low Chill fruits to grown. I found a place that sell's Low Chill pears, but only as bare root plants. I am not sure about growing a bare root tree, as I have never done it before. After a little more researched I found out that I would need more then one type of pear tree to get fruit from them at all. So I order a 4 in 1 Low chill Pear bear root. Its unfortunate that the wrong one was shipped out to me But hey I got this 4 in 1 Asian Pear for free now! You can see how well it was shipped and what a dormant bare root pear looks like.

For those wondering what the 4 types of Asian Pear's are on this tree they are, Twentieth Century, Hosui, Shinseiki, And Shinko

Well the packing looks pretty good.




Not much for Roots.

And I forgot some close up's for the grafts.

Hey Mike - Almost all of the temperate fruit trees that we buy/or produce here are shipped bare root. Just pop 'em in a pot, or the ground.

Tony, That awesome. I have not tired to graft anything yet, I was thinking I should try grafting some other type of Low Chill Peaches to my current peach tree.

Nope, but maybe I could just buy one for a family member and take some cuttings from them.

Does anyone know if the low chill nectarines are any good?

Purchased at Bay laurel, I really can not say anything bad the tree looks good to me. I just hope it takes and starts going.

Do you even have room for a pear or peach? Last time I was over there I thought your yard was packed full.

I've removed half the bananas and am reclaiming some room for blueberries, pineapples,peaches (3), vegetables, and possibly a pear tree.

Default Re: 4 in 1 Low Chill Pear

Here we are again, this time the correct 4 in 1 Low Chill pear has arrived. The 4 types of Pear's on this one are Monterrey, Comice, Hood, and Flordahome.

The shipping was pretty much exactly the same as before very nice, bear root just the same. I hope it jumps back quick and sets fruit next year.

The roots arrived wrapped in wet peat moss.


Roots short but thick.


Potted up and waiting for something to happen.


Graft close up.

Already new growth, They are just starting to open up some leaf's.

This is the Low Chill.


This is the Asian.

I really did not think they could come back so fast. I am feeling a little more confident about growing a bare root plant now.
