Maxie Pear

rehabbingisgreenMarch 18, 2013

Anyone have or going to get a maxie pear? I have considered it but am concerned with the possibility of it being susceptible to fireblight.

Love to hear other thoughts on the tree.

Maxie Lucky.

Thanks Gator, my biggest worry is fireblight with it. I read that it has a long bloom time so it might have issues with that. It only comes in dwarf and standard so I've sent a message asking about rootstock.

I ended up getting a couple from Starks and must say they are super vigorous and have absolutely beautiful purple green colored foliage. They have an upright growing tendency so initial branch bending/raining is constant. I'm focusing on scaffolding and maybe I'll see some fruit in a couple years. As far as hybrids I also got some crisp and sweet from HFlds, also nice. more vigorous than the euros.

I saw Stark's had a nice late season price on them, but I already have a lot of pears and haven't heard much about whether they are worth growing or not.

I just put in a Maxie pear from Starks, too. Will have a Hosui as a companion to it, but not sure about cross-pollination (opinions seem all over the place). Would very much like to hear flavor comments about the Maxie when/if it produces fruit for anyone. I'm in gopher heaven here, so have to be on guard every day - one (now deceased) got my new Kikusui pear from last year.

My Maxie is now dropping its second leaf. Maybe next year it fruits.

I have a Warren pear that i don't spray,it is 9 years old and gives me 4 5gls pails of pear this year.Some of the pears are mishapened. I rate this pear as excellent to say the least. Friends and neighbours told me they have never taste pears that good.This tree takes it time going into fruiting.First pears after 6 years(5 pears) then more.
