Q.Will a shoot from a pear tree with roots transplant?
I’ve moved to a new property and the pear tree which is around 3 years old was too big to move but I noticed a shoot growing from the roots and was able to dig up and cutaway from the parent tree with a fair number of roots. It seems healthy enough in it’s new garden but does a shoot grow into the full fruiting version, it’s a conference pear by the way.

The problem here is that the shoot came from the rootstock so it is not the desirable fruiting pear from above the graft. You will likely get something inferior if it fruits at all. Here is more about tree suckers:
