This grafted pear tree produces a dessert quality pear. Ayer's pear begins dropping in very late August to the beginning of September and pretty much finishes dropping by the end of September here in central Pennsylvania. As you move this tree south from here drop times will back up, as you move it north it will drop later. This is perfect timing here as the bucks begin shedding velvet and a few begin dispersing and setting up that new home range. I wouldn't create an orchard that didn't have fruit falling at this time so that you may be picking up some new bucks not losing them. Ayer's is just one tree that is a good example of a tree that is capable of doing so. It's a good tree that stays pretty disease free in a no spray situation. This tree has excellent vigor and produces annually. Ayer's pear will reach a mature height of 20'+. Suitable for plant hardiness zones 5-7Select options
Bartlett seedling (Pyrus Domestica) is a standard full size pear rootstock. The vigor of 1/4" to 3/8" Bartlett seedling rootstock is about 60% 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 compatible with most any pear varieties especially European cultivars. They will grow in a wide range of soils with deep penetrating ''real roots''. Some of the biggest oldest pear trees I know of standing today are producing on these roots in zone 4b. This pear makes an excellent rootstock when growing pear trees for wildlife. In my experience its typical for me to have a pear on this rootstock achieve 20' by age five and yet still achieving 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.

Candy Crab™ is a 2" applecrab with a complex flavor and finishes with a delightful sweetness. Once you eat one you will want more of these delicious fruits because of its crisp and exciting flavor. The fruit belongs in a grocery store not being planted for deer. It is the best apple I have ever had the pleasure to eat. You can see in my pictures this crab is heavily loaded as it is every year, yet still has a nice size to it.
This applecrab is also a product of natural selection by nature that has never been sprayed and is growing wild in North Western Pennsylvania in plant hardiness zone 5a. This tree fully ripens and is a heavy producer, it begins to drop about October 1st and continues to do so well into late November with just a constant steady pace here in Pennsylvania.
Candy Crab™ is one of among a few 1,000 wild crabs growing within the same vicinity of each other yet is exhibiting no signs of C.A.R, Scab, Powdery Mildew or Fireblight here in the Northeast and present in this area. During the polar vortex of 1994 Candy Crab would have experienced temperatures normally seen in plant hardiness zone 4a, and yet it is still standing here today, which makes this crab very suitable for zone 4b and maybe even below.
The name Candy Crab™ fits this new cultivar perfectly, and I see it being sold well beyond the use for wildlife. If you like to eat apples you would be crazy not to have a Candy Crab™ planted behind the house or on the way to your stand . Mature height will be 20+ . Plant Hardiness zones 4b -7.

This Grafted apple tree is quite possibly the heaviest producing and latest hanging standard apple available anywhere today! Even after many freeze/thaw cycles through mid-February, these apples in the picture aren’t rotten and were obviously receiving a lot of attention from the local deer herd! Fruit on the ground in late winter…..invaluable! Diseases and insect pests show no sign of affecting the huge production of this tree. In fact, the Canisteo apple tree produces so much fruit that in January it’s hard to even see the wood on the branches. Canisteo apple trees begin dropping in January and continue into March. I have seen some cedar apple rust on Canisteo in a no spray orchard. I have seen no blight or Apple Scab on Canisteo and this picture is from a tree that has never been sprayed. This tree will reach a mature height of 20'+ Hardiness zones 5-8.Select options
