I've only fruited four of my Euro pears thus far, though I've got most of the pears listed in this thread in various stages of development on my trees. In order of preference, though honestly, the first three are all excellent here.
I ought to devote a new thread to this next paragraph, but we're already talking pears, so apologies for what I hope is a mild, but sort of relevant hijack. I fruited Warren for the first time last year after eight, possibly ten or maybe even more years - have to go through my chaotic notes/receipts from my poor record-keeping years in order to dig out the exact year I grafted this tree. I had 20-25 fruits from the tree and was a bit disappointed at the level of sugars, but enjoyed them even so. I figured this year I'd have double, maybe triple the number of pears. Nope, I got zilch. Pear trees surrounding Warren have lots of fruits, with several younger trees sporting their very first pears. Anybody familiar enough with Warren to comment on its bearing habits?
Back to the main topic (sort of). I'll be tasting Concorde, Conference, what I think is Butirre Rosata Morettini (poorly identified scion from a CRFG scion exchange) and possibly Packham's Triumph this year if I protect the small crop (one each in the cases Concorde and Conference) these trees have set from maurading birds. Next year should see another handful of varieties begin to produce.
My shipova is also loaded again for the second year running. Last year it was terrible, but the tree defoliate about 70% over the course of four weeks beginning in July, so I'm sure that affected the sugars in the fruit. I'm hoping not to repeat that experience. Exciting times out here in Reno.
