Pear Crops

I hid them from the birds under transparent type 1 (pete) plastic bottle tops. They started falling off the tree at the beginning of September the last one being on the 16th. They don't keep; the first one having gone slightly yellow I decided to eat only to find the inside going over soft. Although sweet and tasty the skin was a bit rough and many times I spat bits out.

No pears in 2016 or 2017. Although there were hundreds of flowers in 2018 there were only two pears, which fell on 8th or 9th September
