Our HARDIEST Pear - SO SWEET
SO SWEET is the best pear for the coldest northern climates. So Sweet is a sweet, juicy, delicious pear that resists Zone 2/3 ( - 40 C ) winters. This variety of pear is very precocious( produces when very young) and fruit is mature very early in season ...August in our climate. Furthermore So Sweet trees are very heavy producers so thinning may be needed if you want bigger fruit. So Sweet trees seems to be self-fertile. Let's get some local fresh pears growing in the Yukon, Nunavut and NWT!
Green Barn is the only propagator of this old heirloom pear found growing wild along the banks of the mighty St Lawrence river... probably from a pear tossed from an early explorer's boat.?
