I finally have pears!

I want everyone on GardenWeb to do a little dance with me. I FINALLY have pears on my tree. I bought a Moonglow at Costco two years ago and planted it near the mature tree. The little thing bloomed this spring and a hive of bees decided to make a home on a dying green ash on the property. I have waited for the June drop, and this time they did not all drop off.

I am so happy. Thank you everyone for your advice.

So, must I thin these beauties?

Congratulations. They don't look too dense to me. Looks like there are ample leaves per fruit and the pears don't look like they will be touching when mature.

Pears can take a LONG time! My Honeysweet has set 7 fruits this year, first ever.

ltilton, I've been trying to get the tree my grandpa planted 60 years ago to fruit. It always fruited when I was a child, but somewhere along the way it's pollinator must have been removed. I've been working on it since 2009.

I just want to encourage others the way I've been encouraged. It was such an ugly tree I thought it was hopeless. I'm so glad I stuck with it.

Anyone have a guess as to what kind of pear it might be?

Congrats. It's the color of a Seckel, but if that's you pear it will become obvious by its small size and big flavor.
