Yeah, Ayers are harder to find. But, I have seen them at Lowe’s.
We have five pears, the other two are Harrow Sweet and Maxine (aka Starking Delicious), so I think we’re covered as far as pollinators are concerned. My three bigger pears are waking up, as seen above, but the apples are still slumbering.
Funny thing, I’m not a big fan of pears, but the Mrs is. I do like Maxine, we got some at a local orchard, and they were sweet, firm, but not gritty, so I said we gotta get one of those. We canned some of them last couple of years and they look very nice in the jars.
Our tree is from Stark’s, called a Starking Delicious. From the stuff I’ve read, it’s the same as a Maxine, so hope they’re right about that.
