There are plenty of great things about this time of year. One of them is ripe pears.
Last year we had great production from our Kieffer tree. This year it only has a few pears on it.
But our Asian pear tree is producing abundantly and I’ve been enjoying a pear or two from it every day.
Asian pears are my favorites. They’re ready to eat right off the tree, with the crunchy texture of an apple while exploding with juice with every bite.
This is the time of year for planting fruit trees. I try to put in one or two new ones every year. This year I think another Asian pear tree would be a good idea.
