Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Parkland 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.

Parkland Apple is an extremely hardy, medium sized apple tree The apples have excellent reviews, they are juicy, crisp, and slightly tart. Apples will be ready to harvest in July-August and will produce apples which are yellow and green with a red blush overlay.

Parkland Apple also makes for a nice accent tree with slightly scented, white flowers blooming in spring that will make a striking feature to any landscape. Ensure you have an additional apple or pear tree within 150 m (500’) to ensure cross pollination and fruit production occur.
