QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • The biggest problem with growing European pears in the Seattle area is pear rust (fungal, orange spots on leaves and flower drop, fruit drop, ultimately tree dies). Are there any European pears which are not susceptible to fungal pear rust; or, what systems for control of fungal pear rust are effective? Thank you.

    You are correct. Gymnosporangium infections (which strike apples, pears, quince, and hawthorn among others) are prevelant in many cities due to the abundance of cedar and juniper used in landscapes. Unfortunatley resistant fruit trees are few and far between, but the good news is that fungicidal sprays like Bonide (copper sulfate) are considered organic, and are effective when used annually. Apply when new growth begins in spring and repeat twice more at two-week intervals. This should provide adequate protection for your tree during the sporification period and prevent disease.

  • Does this pear need to be planted with another like pear or with a different type of pear?

    Another cultivar of European pear is necessary for cross pollination.

Perfect

Big and symmetrical. Roots looked great and the tree is now showing its leaf buds all around, after 10 from planting. Last year's Gem pear wintered well over a hard one and budding right along. Good stock!

Ehhhhh…

Heard great things about the Warren pears so went ahead and ordered one. The tree arrived fine, not huge but healthy. Almost immediately it developed black spots, which turned into black leaves falling off. Almost all the leaves have fallen off, so it doesn’t seem to have much resistance to whatever black fungus or bacteria it has. It hasn’t died yet, but the D’Anjou I got is faring much better so far (also from Raintree). I am going to get some spray to see if it helps, but in dry Colorado weather I was surprised how fast the black stuff started. If it doesn’t make it I won’t try another. A friend of mine got a Luscious Pear and has had no issues, so the Warren might just be ill suited for Denver.
