Need pear info quickly please!!
My first attempt at grafting failed (birds). Im not being forced to buy another pear tree. There are 2 varieties available for me: Red Bartlett, and "john".
The Bartlett is rated zone 5, according to net sources. So Ill skip that one.
I seen some "John" pears, but cant find anything online at all. The one site I did find was from Saskatchewan, which means its more then likely hardy here (I dont get nearly as cold here, or as long as they do there).
I dont know if "John" has sweet fruit, size (fruit and the tree), growth habit, planting recommendations, or anything really. Just that its apparently VERY hardy, and VERY resistant to blight.
I want to get the tree ASAP, so id appreciate any help I can get.
