Pear Magness 2011

Magness Pear

Pyrus communis X

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. Can be pollinated by European or the Asian varieties, but will NOT pollinate others. Zones 5-9.
