Pears Rootstocks                    


Based on observations in commercial orchards throughout the Northeast, Betulaefolia is the most suitable rootstock for Asian pear varieties. Betulaefolia is a vigorous rootstock, well anchored, and drought tolerant. The recommended spacing for plantings on this rootstock is twelve feet between trees in the row and twenty feet between rows.

OHF 97

European pears have performed well on OHF 97 rootstock. This rootstock produces a standard size tree, is hardy, and productive. We are offering this rootstock on a limited basis.

Pollination of Asian Pears

Asian pear varieties perform best when planted with other Asian varieties. Each of the varieties offered by ACN produce viable pollen and may be used to pollinate other Asian varieties. For best results, plant at least two varieties in close proximity to one another.
