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.
