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.

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.
