Unknown Pear- unique flowers

As far as flowers go in regards to pears these are pretty unique.


Considering bloom time does anyone have a guess what type of tree this is? I suspect it’s a Harbin cross perhaps gold spice because it lacks vigor on callery. After 7 years it’s 6 feet tall. I’m not ruling out that It could be an interspecific hybrid.

Those do look like apple blossoms, don’t they.

@SMC_zone6,
Yes this is the first year it might produce fruit.
@marknmt
They do kind of look like apple blossoms except color , timing etc. they sure don’t look exactly like pear either. I think I can rule out shipova http://nwfruit.org/#page/717.

Are they stinky?

They don’t have much of a smell. Does any pear bloom smell great? My pears may not smell at all or they smell bad.

In 2019 i got these fruits. I dont feel any closer to knowing what these are. They took a long time to produce and they are a low quality fruit thus far.

They remind me a bit of this unidentified pear that I am growing. It is also not very good. Mine did not separate nicely from the tree.

Those fruits look kind of like Ya Li, and it is the lowest-vigor pear I have.

The flowers remind of ya li but it is very different. This tree took many many years to flower and is fireblight susceptible. It is stunted like im holding it back. It is very slow growing. Ya li runts its self out with excessive blooming early. Good observations @Lucky_P
