So I've got a semi-dwarf (Moonglow) pear tree which has a root stock sucker coming up. I'm assuming it's quince, but not sure. I've heard that you can clone root stocks by layering the sucker like you do a currant. Is this true? If not, should I leave it and see what fruit it'll bring or is that just a bad call?

well for sure dont let it grow out.

so you can cut it and compost
cut it and root it
or if its long enough layer it

When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
