    Default My new pear tree

    is blooming like crazy! We just planted it in October. Its about 7 feet tall and only has maybe 6 little limbs. Now I know we are going to have to pinch off most of the blooms because the little branches cant handle the weight.

    It is just so cute, I'll try to get a picture of it, and the name of what it is. I'm so excited.. someday I'll have pears.

    How neat! I would love to plant a few more fruit trees, we have a Washington navel orange and a lemon tree that are going crazy right now!

    We planted a drawf pear tree last spring to replace a tree that the ice storm damaged. It's got tiny little pears on it! Won't it be great when they start producing in earnest!

    You need two for pears folks! Either in your yard or in the neighborhood to pollinate!

    Both of mine are self pollinating, so is the new peach tree. I'm really not even sure what these are. I'll go look at the tags.
    My friend gave them to us last fall from his nursery, so I'm not going to be picky. I think these are dwarf too.

    I can't wait until we have our own property. I miss having fresh pears in the summer. We do have a cherry tree, peach tree, apple trees, and a crabapple tree that are beautiful when they are blooming.
