Apples or Pears? Pears or Apples?
Apples are the iconic fruit. Instantly recognizable and a familiar shape and taste. Apples, though are notoriously difficult to grow well. Millions of apple trees are planted in the U.S. every year yet very few people are pleased with the results of their planting. Apple trees are finicky and to bear those iconic fruit they require a great deal of care and attention. An apple tree must be pruned and will be beset by numerous pests and diseases. All of which are determined to consume or disfigure the apple as seen in the minds eye when the tree was planted.
Pears are the ugly duckling of the fruit world. Under appreciated and under planted pears are a work horse . The pear tree is hardy throughout the U.S. , adapted to all regions of the east. Pear trees will produce some sort of crop most years with near total neglect. But with some care and attention you will be rewarded with a bumper crop of large luxurious fruit worthy of the finest gourmet kitchen.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder but to put fruit on the table year in and year out, pears are the best bet.
