Siberian Pears

I planted the seeds for these Siberian pear trees around 1985 so they are about 28 years old now.  This is a photograph of me under the trees in full bloom, taken in early May in Northfield, VT. They are very hardy trees of Pyrusussuriensis and the fruits make a delicious pear jelly, although they are fairly astringent and not good to eat fresh.  The pears are small and of similar size and shape to a Seckel pear.  Here at Lightfoot Farm they are processed in a steam juicer to produce juice for making the jelly.

That's amazing! It's really shocking how beautiful a single seed can become through years of taking care of it. It's a good thing that you have shared this on your blog because somehow, it will spread awareness on how beautiful this world can become especially when we all work together to save Mother Nature. Let’s all try to plant 1 seed for each person and see how much we can change through that simple act. If we start today then definitely, we can help those people who will live on this planet in future time.

You mention processing the Siberian pears in a steam processer. Would it work cooking them down and then letting them drip through a jelly bag? Or even a 'juicer' such as Breville?

You have some good memories with this tree and it is good to know that this tree is now big. The flowers of this tree are also looking so wonderful. I know the day when I grow first time the plant and I missed this plant so much because we shifted that place.

You have a beautiful tree out there. I can see that you really love Siberian Pear trees and you take a good care of it because if not, it will never turn out to be as beautiful as in the picture. I hope that I could plant some Siberian Pear tree someday. I know that it is also a wonderful choice for a windbreaker as it keeps its branches very low in height. I agree, it is now gaining in popularity, certainly because of its beauty.
