I am amazed at how many pears are on my neighbors pear tree. It is really LOADED! The tree is more than 25′ tall and equally as wide. Each branch dipping low heavy from the weight of the fruit.
As beautiful as that sight may be, it is more sad to know that those pear will never ripen. We have had no rain to speak of in months and months and months and the result is unripe fruit.
Week after week I gaze at that pear tree. I walk over and give a pear a squeeze and they all remain as hard as a rock. I hope one day my pear tree will rival this one in size and production. I just hope we get enough rain over the years so I can watch it grow.
