We did not intend for any fruit to set on our young pear trees this year, but we obviously missed some of the blossoms earlier in the spring. We actually “harvested” a few pears from different trees, including a few Asian pears this evening. Just enough to taste the varieties – don’t think it hurt the trees any either. They were definitely ripe enough to pick: still firm, but full of juice. Someday, these will make beautiful wine!
