We planted the pear trees in the spring of 2007 and I have been patiently waiting for the first blossoms to arrive and they finally did! It only took four years, but if all goes well I think there'll be pears this fall. This particular combo tree has Highland, Red Bartlett, Conference, Bartlett and Angou pears. I am soooo excited. We also have a Bosc tree that seems happy to have just leaves this season.
