Amazing fruit
Reviewed By: Tony (Herriman, Utah)
I bought this tree two years ago and it rooted easily. My dog eat the top off last fall and I didn't think it would recover. To my suprise the tree came out of it in spring of 09. It has grown over two feet this year and bore two fruits. We harvested the amber gems this week and were amazed by the sweet flavor and crispness. I cant wait to see what next year bring, more fruit I hope. I just need to keep my dog away til then!

Slow growers-awesome producers
Reviewed By: Candace (Lawrenceville, Georgia)
Yes, this tree is a slow grower, however I noticed than on the third year mine started putting out much longer new branches than pervios years. That aside, this tree is an awesome producer; it is covered with pears. It produces like a myers lemon tree. I suppose I could enhance growth by removing fruit, but I can't 'waste' them. Besides this year my tree put out several new shoots over a foot long, while being covered with fruit; that's pretty good growth. The fruit is wonderful and given it costs over a dollar per fruit to buy, I'd say this is an exceptional buy. Wonderful tree!

Excellent Fruit
Reviewed By: Candace (Lawrenceville, Georgia)
I bought two (2) of these trees and they both produced fruit the next year. The trees are heavy producers and the fruit is wonderful. They are slow growers however and (at least in Ga clay soils) will not add much height from year to year. You could remove the fruit to help this process, but between the two trees, I get more than enough fruit.......

non-grower
Reviewed By: don milam (kelly's creek, west virginia)
Plants arrived in good shape. They were planted on hillside about 200 feet away from apple trees that do just great. I planted these pears 2 years ago in well drained very nice soil and ample water supply with a 6.5 ph. In two years these trees have grown 2 inches without any real bush-out. Clipped them out sparingly last year- no results in growth. Sweet sixteen apples on same hillside have grown more than 16 inches.
