Fruit Tree Record

These are the fruit trees I currently have in my backyard

1. Combination Pear Tree
    (Shinseiki Asian Pear /. Swarf Comice Par / Chojuro Asian Pear / 20th Century Asian Pear
    This year I will graft the Old World Pyrus Pear onto this tree. It was grafted March 23rd 2017

3. The back yard has one combination cherry tree including: Stella Cherry, Royal Anne Cherry, and Lapins Cherry. They combination cherry is next to two dwarf Van Cherry trees which require Lapin Cherry for pollination.

Finally, today I rooted three pear scions: Pyrus, Sarteau and and unknown yellow French pear I suspect may be Mespitas (a very old, ugly medieval fruit). I also planted 25 pear seedlings that have been in my fridge over the winter. A lot of work achieved today.
