	Henry,

	 I have a HUGE pear tree too. I don't remember the variety and it
doesn't make any difference. I'd bet it is the same variety as yours
and, if I absolutely had to, I'd bet that I could trace its origin and
name.

 There is a large pear tree in the former pasture behind the farm in
Dakota County, Minnesota.

 Its trunk is about 40 inches in diameter. It towers above the other
trees around it.

 The beautiful display of white flowers got my attention this spring.

 The fruit are a couple inches long, pear shaped and green when they
fall from the tree. Hard but tasty.

 It does not match callery pear nor Ussurian pear.

 Any way to figure what kind of pear we have?
