I asked this question last year or the year before, but I didn't record the answer. How do you tell when an Asian pear is ready to pick? My 2-1 tree is loaded with Korean Giants and Shinseikis. It's been a strange year in that we had a very late spring, feet of rain and we have yet to hit 90F. Last year, I picked all the pears by the third week of August, but everything is lagging this year.
Second question. I love the plums labeled "prune plums" in the grocery store this time of year. What are they? I'd love to plant a tree. And, do they need a pollinator. I understand grapes, berries, currants, pears, apples, cherries and peaches, but plums are foreign territory for me.
