I would like to grow a pear tree from seed taken from the pear itself. Q-1. Does the seed need to be dried before stratification? Q-2. How long should I keep the seed in the fridge? Q-3. My plan was to use a well moistened mix of 50/50 peat moss and perlite and keep the seeds in a zip-lock baggie in my fridge. Does that sound OK?
