We can see the two pear trees from the bay window in the dinning room/kitchen. Last night we realized something was different. One limb looked like it was broke. We went to check it out and it doesn't look broke or cracked anywhere just bent by the weight of the pears. Problem is the pears are only half grown. As they get bigger this limb may not make it.
A closer look at just one branch on that limb.
This type of pear is not ripe until late September so they still have a big portion of their growing season left. Last year I made pear butter in the crock pot and a pear relish that is sweet and savory. It's very good with pork.
