A few weeks ago I was on cloud nine because my other Pear tree flowered this year, which means I was in with a good chance of getting some pollinated flowers. And guess what? It worked. The flowers did pollinate and there are tiny Pears growing on the trees. Hooray!
I have Pears growing on both trees (Conference and Doyenne du Comice) and I counted a total of 18 Pears. Whoohoo!
I have never tasted a home-grown Pear but knowing how good Pears ‘can’ taste even from the supermarket my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I can’t wait. I’m hoping the taste will be worth the wait of almost three years!
