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.
