Fuzzy Pear Update

10/1/2011 Update: This is a quince! Read more about this here:  https://janedata.wordpress.com/2011/10/01/its-a-quince/

One of the fuzzy pears on my 3-in-1 pear trees has revealed what is under all of that fuzz: a beautiful, bright green skin! With the help of breezes and corresponding friction of adjacent leaves, some of the fuzz of this immature pear was scraped off.

So far, the pear looks to have a short neck. As mentioned in previous posts, this 3-in-1 pear tree, although identified as such, had more than 3 tags on it, so I am not yet sure what this particular pear variety is. Mystery!  I have 2 such trees, and this season, only this variety has emerged on both trees. It’s been quite a fuzzy season!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  Pear seeds are highly toxic if ingested.  More information on toxic plants can be found here:
