Earlier this spring, I shared a photo I took of blossoms on my pear tree. So very pretty... but it never bore any fruit. Twenty years since I planted my pair of Minnesota-hardy Harbin Pear trees... never any fruit.
Until about a month ago... To my amazement, the tree was heavily-laden with the most beautiful pears. Small... barely 2 inches across and very firm.
Today, I picked up some that had fallen on the ground to see if I can encourage ripening by placing them in a brown paper bag.
Such a pretty blush...
