Some of the problems may have been rootstock on the pears I had. Then of
course there were the two trees my goats ate :)
I've picked about 10 pounds of these little hard pears and ripened them with
an apple in a bowl. Going to try canning them as spiced pears as they are a
bit gritty for fresh eating. I was impressed with how much fruit was set
without a nearby pollinator with this tree.
