This is a highly pest resistant and high-quality eating pear I picked up as scionwood from the USDA.  Joan Morgan - pear author writes:

You will receive a stick with at least 5 easy to use buds with mature wood beneath all 5-buds .  Scions came to me from the USDA as a synonym under the name of 'Clara Frijs',  (''Comtesse Clara Frijs'') ..  My sticks I got from: https://npgsweb.ars-grin.gov/gringlobal/accessiondetail?id=1223413

I'm a vetted grafter that when I prepare my scions for you or myself for that matter, there is never a single bud that has wood below it that the wood is immature. The wood is always dense and will successfully push the bud .  That's for your kind support.  Dax
