Pear Roostock (beurre hardy on Quince C)

A beurre hardy pear grafted onto dwarfing Quince C rootstock for propagating pears that are not compatible with quince. This allows "interstemming" to bridge the gap between the pear scion and the quince rootstock. These have been grown on for two years, so more expensive than other roostocks. Established root system.

For propagating compatible pears, graft straight onto Quince C rootstock.

More information here on propagating pears and a list of some compatible / incompatible varieties.
