USDA Genebank Living Collections Open House

Mid-season Pears & Cider Pears

Thursday, August 29, 2013 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

The NCGR Pear Orchard will provide an opportunity to sample hundreds of the more than 1000 pear cultivars and species preserved at the genebank during peak maturity season for this crop. There has been much interest in perry pears (cider pears) in recent years, and while you probably don’t want to taste these rather astringent fruits this will be a good time to experience the diversity of aromas, shapes, sizes and ripening seasons.

The National Clonal Germplasm Repository is in Corvallis, Oregon, at 33447 Peoria Road.  From Corvallis go 1 mile east on Hwy 34, turn south on Peoria Rd. and go 1 mile until you see the Pear Open House sign.
