Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Siberian C Peach

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 Siberian C Peach is a cold hardy peach cultivar, and the fruit is great for producing juice and fresh eating. This variety is native to the Gobi desert area of China, and is relatively true to seed. In colder climates they might not grow fruit reliably as they require a relatively hot summer for the fruit to produce.

Unlike most peach trees the Siberian C Peach doesn’t require thinning and is quite productive. The fruit are firm enough to handle mechanical harvesting.

While it is possible to graft other peach varieties to the Siberian C Peach, research has shown that the Chui Lum Tao Peach and Tzim Pee Tao Peach are better candidates for rootstock.
