Callery Pear – Fruit

Q: What are these mini pears? My tree is loaded with them!

A: They’re most likely fruit from a “wild” callery pear but they could be the fruit from a callery pear that cross-pollinated an edible pear. I doubt they have much taste.

You may not be aware that the ornamental ‘Bradford’ pear was originally thought to be fruitless but experience has proven otherwise.
