Re: RE: [nafex] Minie / Miney pears

Hello Claude. I will send you the same information that I am sending to Richard. There was no mention of  Savignac pear in this literature, but I will see if I can find something elsewhere.

I would also be very interested by this information and read the original
descriptions... Also, I would like to find the origin of the Savignac pears
- 4 or 5 trees were sent to Brother Savignac at Joliette around 1947 by the
Ottawa farm, presumably for testing. I think they were unnamed selections
from this same program. 2 of these trees are still alive (at least were a
few years ago) and wood from these trees have been propagated under the
name 'Savignac'. I would very much like to see if there are mentions of
these trees in the report, and if we could find their parentage.
Thanks very much,
