First Pear Blossom (2023)

We have two espalier pear trees. One is definitely Concorde - a cross between Conference and Doyenne du Comice. The other, I suspect but don't know for sure, is a Doyenne du Comice - chosen as a co-pollinator for Concorde.

It is the concurrence of these two events that make these two pear varieties ideal as co-pollinators.

Hoping for no late frosts to spoil the harvest.🤞
