@jrowjimgow ! I’m glad to hear that someone else talks to their plants!
Those pears are impressive! I am going to plant a couple of pear trees this coming spring. They are not my favorite fruit . . . but are supposed to do well in this area. Unless I order from a catalog, it seems that my only choices are Bartlett or Bosc.
Any suggestions, from the Forum, as to which varieties are more bomb-proof - and worth growing ‘flavor-wise’?
Also . . . is there a huge difference between the ‘home-grown’ and grocery Asian Pears? Because, I have not had any of those, from the grocery, that have much flavor.
