Hardy seedling rootstock Van Well Nursery uses for pear and Asian pear varieties
OHxF 87 makes a tree slightly smaller than Bartlett on seedling root and is considered a semi-dwarf tree. OHxF 87 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 87 is an excellent producer.
A clonal rootstock of Old Home and Farmingdale, this rootstock is resistant to pear decline and fireblight. It is a superior rootstock for vigorous pear trees and provides good anchoring and yield efficiency. OHxF 97 is hardy and resilient to cold.
