Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Fall Red 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.

The Fall Red Apple produces large ruby red apples with white flesh that are crisp and sweet. This delicious fruit is great for fresh eating or baking, with a good storage life. Its showy clusters of white flowers in spring add fragrance and beauty to your garden or yard.

Like most apples, the Fall Red apple will produce fruit on its own, but can benefit from another variety of apple (such as Prairie Sensation Apple) for cross pollination. It is a disease resistant alternative to the McIntosh Apple.
