Early Morettini Pear Scionwood (Spring 2024)


A delicious early-season pear originally from Italy.

Morettini pear trees show good resistance to scab and mild susceptibility to fireblight. The tree is vigorous, productive, and hardy to Zone 4.

Ripening about 3 weeks before Bartlett, this is one of the best early pears. The skin is smooth, greenish-yellow blushed pink, and the flesh is buttery, sweet, and spicy.

Morettini pears were developed in Florence Italy and released in 1956. This is a cross of Coscia and Bartlett.

Clean vs. Regular

Our clean scion is harvested from trees grown on G.16, which is extremely sensitive to viruses. These trees would not have survived if the scion contained viruses. Our clean wood has not been lab tested. Regular = may contain one of the common latent viruses; this is not usually a problem and can be used with most rootstocks.
