ASIAN PEARS


Our Asian pear or apple tree , sometimes called a Papple, is full of fruit.
I think that by the time we return from Kenya we will have a crop of ripe sweet fruit for the picking.

Where do you come up with these names? A "Papple"? Oh, brother... Sounds like it would taste good with a Snickerdoodle...

Olivier said...

je ne connaissais pas les poires asiatiques, je me demande quel gout elles ont ?
I did not know the Asiatic pears, I wonder what taste they have?

Yummy! Asian pears are always nice and juicy.

Never heard of the papple before. Looks juicy :)

I wished I could taste one of your truly ripe pear-apples, once they are ripe for the picking. I suspect that the rather tart specimen sold at Safeway's and other supermarkets are but a shadow of the real thing!

Hello Sue!
We got so heavy rain today, that we came to the town.
Now I can see your photos and also this comment will come to you, I hope :)

Kenya sounds really great.
I have never been in a safari, but my husband has been there and seen all those animals, elephants and giraffes made a greatest impression seen so near.
I wish you a wonderful journey and plenty of photos , of course!

Oh this is nice. I've never seen this fruit on a tree. I love Asian pears!

I love snickerdoodles so I am sure the papple would be good with it. Beautiful fruit, I love the lighting in the photo. We have an avacado tree and a grapefruit tree that my husband grew from seeds.

I miss having fruit trees in the yard. Our plum tree died an horrific death.
