Pear Magness 2011 Easy to care for and disease-resistant. Bears sweet perfumed fruit picked around August 26th in VA. Its buttery melting flavor rivals any pear. Has a similar flavor to Comice. Comice is very susceptible to fire blight. I love those Comices to pieces but would not grow one, as it would surely die from fire blight in our area of Virginia. Magness grows well in areas such as MS and LA and is hardy in MI.It is Very fire blight resistant. Space dwarf 8'- 10'circle or standard 15-20'circle.

Pear Warren Warren Pear was named after T O Warren from Hattiesburg, MS. Thought to be a seedling selection from the breeding work of USDA's fruit breeder Dr. Magness, Beltsville,MD. Fruits are buttery and smooth with no grit towards the center of the fruit. T O, a fruit explorer, found the tree at a pear test plot near his home and popularized the variety. Warren pear comes from the same seed stock as Magness pear and is very similar in appearance and disease resistance. However, it is self fertile and pollinates other pears. Chilling requirement 600 hours. Zone 5-9 semi dwarf tree space @ 10' circles.
