Saturday 14 Oct 2017 I have been growing apple trees for several years, but now would like to expand to pears. I would like to begin with the Josephine de Malines pear, and although I find it readily available in the UK and Australia, I can find no nursery in the U.S. that sells it. Would you be able to help me?

This nursery in Washington appears to carry it: http://ellenbytreefarm.com/pro...

A Google search would quite possibly turn up other nurseries that sell it.

Ellenby Tree Farm is located in Australia, and appears not to ship to the U.S. With Google over the page past few weeks, have found several sites in England and Scotland, but again not shipping to the U.S. The Josephine de Malines Pear, though apparently developed in the U.S., cannot be purchased here!

Yes, their phone number is not a US# and as their email show, it's in Australia, WA stands for Western Australia.

Oops, sorry -- I obviously didn't look closely enough at the address *Blush*
