Let me know what you find out, might like to have a Yellow Huffcap myself.

I ended up with some Yellow Huffcap this year. PM/email me and I can send a small stick for the cost of postage.
Also have Blakeney Red, Barland, and Barnet perry pear scion if you are interested.

Ask me next year. I'm done pruning and didn't save any wood but I have the 4 you requested. Butt isn't large enough to get scionwood but hope that one takes off this year.

Hi there,

I noticed this thread from last year and wanted to see if anyone has perry pear scions available this year? I'm looking for a number of varieties, but the following are in order of importance to me:

Red Blakeney
Winnals Longdon
Normanischen Ciderbirne
Hendre Huffcap

I have a few hundred young cider apple trees that I may be able to trade with. They are small trees but some of them are large enough to spare a scion or two.

I have




I would want to check and make sure I have the Barnet or the Barland, I definitely have one or both, the names get mixed up in my memory.

I may have a Gin, a thorn or a huffcap.

I need a Newton Pippin tree or scion wood.

Hello all. I just stumbled across this forum while doing a google search. I have been looking for this community for several years. We have a HUGE bradford/callery problem around here. They happily grow in any maintained area and produce the sharpest thorns around! When I asked some county locals what they were they called them wild plumbs. Any ways once I figured it out I started grafting (mostly Bartlett and one unknown sweet variety) to some of the Callery pears on my property. They have done wonderfully but I really want to start maintaining some heirloom perry varieties. I don't have much of anything to trade I could probably come up with some mulberry persimmon and pawpaw if anyone is interested in those. If not I would be glad to send some money via paypal. I would like to get 2-3 scions from as many varieties as possible. We have plenty of fire blight and rust so finding old disease resistant varieties is a top priority. Please keep me in mind in the fall/winter of 2018-19.
