Overview
This pear was slow out the shoot, (2015-70437) however picked up steam once winter was behind us. It has grown nicely this year except for the aphids they also attacked my Bartlett pear which is ten feet away, also Stark. The Blake started much better than the Bartlett however the Bartlett is playing catchup now that I have taken care of the aphids. This is the first time I have seen aphids on my property and I am a rose grower - there must be something very sweet in these trees...
