Almond-Leaf Pear Seeds

Packet of 10 seeds, ALPE_S $3.10
Extremely tough spur-type pear tree. Produces hard 1-2” tart pears remaining good through December. The fruits are produced on short spurs all along the branches. Extremely dense wood. Hard to prune even with good loppers. One of the best tree-form pears we grow with no narrow crotch angles, so splitting of branches is non-existent. 

To germinate the seeds:  Fall plant seeds before winter and cover with 1/4 inch sandy soil inch. Space seeds about 1 inch apart in the row. Seeds will germinate in the spring.  Seedlings are quite frost resistant so not to worry for most frosts.   For refrigeration, store at 33-38 F in lightly moist Canadian peat moss for 90-120 days. Seeds will begin to sprout after 60-80 days. Lightly cover the seeds if you are growing them in pots so to avoid damping off.
