Unidentified tree

Could we have a photo of the whole tree please, also a branch so we can see the way the leaves grow.  A photo of the trunk/bark would be good too.

According to this the wild cucumber vine seedpod holds only four large seeds, so I don't think it's that.

Also I can't see any tendrils.

Pears, picking

Posted: 11/09/2016 at 15:52

This is a fantastic recipe, particularly if the pears are a little bit under-ripe 

My espaliered Concorde pear is only four years old, and has three tiers - this year each branch on the two lower tiers flowered and set lots of fruit - however it obviously knew exactly what it was doing because in the June Drop it only retained one fruit per branch i.e. four pears in total - ideal for such a baby tree 

Looking forward to them ...
