Help,Bought the pear tree from a well known seed company at the beginning of the year and so far the fruit looks like there apples, I am new to fruit growing but surely they should Be pear shaped!!!
Looks like apple to me-to be 100% sure cut one open-you will soon tell
Then back to the company
Thank you ,it's an apple
Sadie- oops!! Hope you get a resolution with the company - I expect it happens quite frequently. With any luck they'll send you a pear and you've got a bargain -assuming you wanted an apple tree that is!
Must be a regular occurence, we bought plums and got cherries instead.
When I complained the company said " sometimes they throw odd fruit in the first year, wait another twelve months and see what comes then".
I made them change the trees straight away.
I got a garden bargain stella cherry that turned out to be a PEAR. I got a reply from the company that I could keep the PEACH !!!! and they sent another cherry tree (but the following season)
lol Sadie you made me giggle.
