PERRY PEAR TREE - $1 (Chesaning)

  PERRY PEAR TREE - $1 Chesaning

A few years back I transplanted a pear tree. It turned out to be a perry pear tree or a winter pear. It produces lots of smaller round pears, maybe a bit larger than a golf ball. The pears remain hard for the longest time. Initially I thought maybe soil fertility was why the tree wasn't producing larger pears that would ripen in a timely manner. Then I thought maybe the spring frost affected it, by somehow damaging the fruit. Then I looked online at various pear trees and blogs. It appears this is a type of pear tree that is used to make a fermented drink called perry. Or it appears that the fruit can be cooked down to make pear jams or a pear butter spread. I don't want to ferment or cook. I want to find a new home for this tree and replace with an eating pear. ( call me if you have any saplings to get rid of) I transplanted the tree 3 years ago and it was about 9 feet tall then. It has grown nicely and is now close to 15 feet. I can help dig out and wrap the root ball. I can take a deposit and tree can be moved once it goes dormant. Please call me to further discuss. 810-447-114nine.
