Old but the best
This is the pear my great-grandfather planted. I still have one of the original trees I have friends and relatives all around that I have to call when they are getting ripe.

Good so far
The pear has survived from last year, and grown vigorously this spring. We are a long way from tasting any fruit.

Tree has only been planted for 1 year, so pretty hard to evaluate. Tree appears healthy and growing.
