Pear, Columbia Red Anjou® (OHxF 87) (CI)
At a Glance: This Anjou mutation was discovered at Eugene Euwer’s orchard near Hood River, OR. It produces uniform oblong-ovate fruit that is red with golden-white flesh that has a smooth texture. The fruit matures in late August to mid-September and stores well. It is a vigorous tree that requires cross-pollination. (Bartlett is a suitable pollinator).
OHxF 87: Makes a tree slightly smaller than Bartlett on seedling root and is considered a semi-dwarf tree. OHxF 87 is one of the best producing rootstocks of the OHxF series and was selected for this reason. The OHxF selections are compatible with most pear varieties and are known for their tolerance to blight and decline. Research from Oregon shows OHxF 87 is an excellent producer.
