Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Antonovka 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.

Originally created in Russia, this apple tree is incredibly cold hardy and commonly used as a root stock for other apple breeds.

Cross pollination is required with another apple, pear or crabapple tree in order for fruit to be produced. Generally, fruit production does not occur until the tree has reached 5-7 years of age.

Its fruit are yellow/green, low sugar, late fruiting and great for pies and cider.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.
