I'm the proud mama of two new fruit trees!
We had a dead silver maple (I think) that needed to be removed and that opened up some room in our yard.
And I met a cool new friend who grows fruit trees for fun (How awesome is that?!?!) He hooked me up with an Apricot and a Pear tree! Both are very winter hearty and happy living in Minnesota.
The pear tree is a Comptesse Clara Frijs Pear originally from Denmark in the 19th century. I must admit I chose this one largely based on the name. She just sounds so regal!
The apricot is a Chinese Sweet Pit Apricot. You can eat the pits!
I'm super excited to get these planted and watch them grow up. Maybe in a couple years I'll be canning apricot and pear jam from my backyard!
