European Pear : RESCUE     Semi-Dwarf (OHxF87)


118 in stock

A Rescue tree bedecked with ripening fruit is a sight to behold! As Raintree Nursery puts it, "This pear is a show stopper. Everyone who sees and tastes this huge, beautiful fruit insists on buying a tree!" A bright, red-orange blush covers much of the yellowish skin. Creamy, smooth flesh is meltingly juicy with a luscious, soothing flavour for the pleasurable fresh eating. With it's small core, Rescue is an ideal canning pear too. The reliable, disease resistant tree will benefit from support under heavy laden branches in the last month or so before picking, to prevent them from breaking.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
