Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Norkent Apple

Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.

This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.

It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, and is also an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.

Norkent Apple produces fruit that is desirable for fresh eating. The apples most closely resemble Golden Delicious in appearance and taste. Our stock is grafted onto V3 or Siberian Crab rootstock for better planting. If you want a great prairie hardy apple for eating, cooking, juicing or making cider, this is the variety for you.

Note: We do not ship grafted apples to BC due to regulatory restrictions from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
