Pear rootstock Pyrodwarf(S)

Vegetatively propagated Pyrus communis rootstock
Pyrodwarf(S) is a Pyrus communis clone originating from the crossing "Gute Luise (Bonne Louise d'Avranches)" x "Old Home". It was developped at the research institute at Geisenheim and is marketed by the CDB.

Pyrodwarf(S) is especially suited for sites, which cause problems to quince rootstocks.

Pyrodwarf(S) grows less vigorous than pear seedling, similar to quince BA29 and quince A.

Concerning cropping potential and specific yields, Pyrodwarf(S) does not equal quince C.  Early yields are achieved with weak growth on dry sites.
