Bartlett seedling (Pyrus Domestica) is a standard full-size pear rootstock. The 1/4" to 3/8" Bartlett seedling rootstock is more vigorous than that of ohxf 97. Winter hardy well into plant hardiness zone 4 at -25 to -30 degrees. This pear rootstock will reach a mature height of well above 20' (as seen in pictures) and is compatible with most pear varieties especially European cultivars. They will grow in a wide range of soils with deep penetrating ''real roots''. Some of the oldest pear trees I know of today are produced on these roots in zone 4b. This pear makes an excellent rootstock when growing pear trees for wildlife. In my experience, it's typical for me to have a pear on this rootstock achieve 20' by age five and yet still achieve 3' of growth annually in years after. This creates an enormous pear tree reaching well above 30' mature height providing the most soft mast possible. When grafting onto the most vigorous one-year-old seedling such as these in 1/4'' to 3/8'' diameter.
