My property came with a pear tree planted in front of the house. It has been bearing fruit every year ever since I bought the house except last year and the year before which may be due to the drought and also for not being watered regularly.
For this season, it is loaded with fruit thanks to the rains; not only loaded but the fruits are bigger than normal. The fruit is brownish in color and not suitable for eating as it is but it is good for cooking; especially good for baking such as making pies as it is firm and hold well when baked. It is a bit tough and not as juicy as the light green variety.
