Hardy seedling rootstock Van Well Nursery uses for pear and Asian pear varieties
OHxF 87TM makes a tree slightly smaller than Bartlett on seedling root. It is considered a semi-dwarf tree. OHxF 87TM is one of the best producing rootstocks of the OHxF series and was selected for this reason. The OHxF selections are compatible with most pear varieties and are known for their tolerance to blight and decline. Research from Oregon shows OHxF 87TM is an excellent producer. As a patented selection, OHxF 87TM is available only through selected outlets. Van Well offers this rootstock through a licensing agreement with Carlton Plants, Inc.
A clonal rootstock of Old Home x Farmingdale, this rootstock is resistant to pear decline and fireblight. It is a superior rootstock for vigorous pear trees. Hardy and resilient to cold. It provides good anchoring and yield efficiency.
