Would You Please Grow A Pear?

I love pears. In fact, they are without a doubt right up there next to pineapple as my favorite fruits. So I bought a red pear tree a few years back and planted it in the yard. A couple of years went by without any blossoms. Then the next year I got a few blossoms, but the fruit didn’t form. Last year, I got more blossoms and a half-dozen fully mature, juicy and delicious pears. But honestly, it was just enough to qualify as an impolite tease…

This year, she’s loaded. There are handfuls of blossoms on every branch. I’m pleading with her to make me a proud pear tree papa.
