We purchased and planted our two dwarf pear trees ($20 each) a year and a half ago when they had several baby-sized pears set on their thin limbs. After the transplant from container to ground all the little pears fell off. This spring we had blossoms on only one of our two dwarf pear trees. I thought all the blossoms shriveled up without even one pear setting on. A few days ago I noticed a green thing on the branch. Sure enough we have one growing pear. It is almost the size of the ones you see in the stores. At some point I'm going to pick it and I'm going to slice it into small pieces and share it with the other one and only in my life and we'll savor that long-awaited,$40 pear.
