Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Prairie Sensation 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.

Prairie Sensation Apple is a cold hardy tree that produces large, delicious apples that are great for fresh eating.

Developed at the University of Saskatchewan, the apples produced by Prairie Sensation have been reported to have a juicy, crisp, and sweet flavor. Beautifully round in shape, these apples range from yellow to green with a reddish overlay.

Like all other apples, Prairie Sensation requires an additional pollinator, such as a pear, crabapple, or another apple to ensure fruit production. Keep in mind most residential neighbourhoods will have another pollinator present, but it does not hurt to get two just in case.

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