Also an attractive ornamental tree with stunning bronze leaves and large white flowers.
Compatibility: It should be noted that there are many incompatible varieties when worked on Quince (especially Quince C). In these instances a suitable interstock should be used and Beurre Hardy, Doyenne du Comice and Old Home are suitable. The latter will also impart some resistance to Fireblight. Quince 'C' - Dwarf. and slightly earlier into cropping. Quince Eline® - Dwarf. Similar size to Quince 'C' but more productive and very hardy. Smoother fruit with less russetting. Quince 'A' - Semi Vigorous. The ideal root stock for bush trees. Pyrodwarf - Vigourous. A German selection giving something between Q.A and Pyrus communis from early observations. Probably more vigorous than claimed. Early signs are very promising due to early fruiting influence, uniformity and resistance to fireblight through its Old Home parentage. Pyrus communis (Seedling pear) - Very vigorous. More suitable for half standard and especially standard trees. Pyrus Kirchensaller - Very vigorous. A more uniform and productive selection of Pyrus communis.
