Listed in approximate order of dwarfing / size control--- results can vary with your site and the vigor of grafted scion.
PyroDwarf®  [40-50%]--- Very precocious with fruiting beginning in 2-4 years.  High yield efficiency.  Uniform fruit size.  Highly frost hardy.  Does not sucker.  Low availability of varieties--- recommended for testing.
OHxF 333 [50-70%]--- A superior selection to replace Province Quince as it is much more hardy.  50-70% of standard size.  Resistant to fire blight and pear decline.  Does not sucker.  Well anchored and productive.  Does well on a variety of soils.  Very limited in availability.
Pyro™ 2-33 [85-90%]--- A very precocious rootstock recommended for testing at this time.  Early fruiting.  Shows good winter hardiness and anchorage.  Low availability of varieties--- recommended for testing.
OHxF 87™ [85-90%]--- One of the most precocious OHxF rootstocks.  Promotes early spurring.  Slightly dwarfer than OHxF 97.  Good availability of many varieties.
OHxF 97 [95-100%]--- This Old Home x Farmingdale selection is replacing common pear seedling.  Similar in vigor and size control it will produce almost standard trees which are very productive.  Well anchored.  Excellent availability of most varieties.
Pyrus communis "Bartlett seedling" [100%]--- Common pear seedlings which produce 100% standard size trees.  Being replaced by the OHxF series.  P. communis is very vigorous and has good productivity, but can be more variable than desired due to its seedling nature and natural genetic variability.  Reduced availability since being replaced by OHxF rootstocks which produce more uniform trees.
Pyrus betulafolia [100%]--- An excellent rootstock for Asian Pears on the East Coast.  Limited Availability.
