pyrus golden spice vs john pear

canadianplantJune 1, 2014

I have two hybrid pears, one john and one golden spice. the in its third year and produced a hand full of pears. I got the golden spice at the end of last year and planted it.

the john broke dormancy about.two weeks ago and is flowering and is leafing out while the golden.spice seems to be lagging. it is just starting to pop open the.buds.

most fruits here seem to all pop buds with in the same week but this guy is different. could it be col damage or because I planted in the fall?

I suspect fall planting, your cold climate it is wise to spring plant only.

Thats what I was thinking too... It was planted in the middle of september or so. I guess there wasnt enough time to get the roots established. Its breaking dormancy now. Im going to give it a shot of seaweed fert. Its said to help transplanting and root regeneration.
