Would you ever grow a callery pear?
I'd normally say no but a local park gave me a fruit from the 9/11 survivor tree (a callery pear) and asked me to grow it until it is large enough to put somewhere in the park.
It was not overwintered properly (i.e not stored cool and moist) so I have it in my refrigerator now. How long do I need to chill it before I can attempt to break dormancy?
I told them what it is. They still want it.
