What's up with the search engine?

I've been trying to do research on pears. Some time ago I wrote down some notes regarding a member that said Abete Fetel, Belle D Guigno, and Fondante de Moulle were favorites. I have tried every variation of the names: Abbe Fetel, Abbe Fetal, Abate Fetel, Bella di Giugno, Bella de Guigno, Fondante de Moulins Lille, and have had no luck.

I KNOW there are posts regarding these varieties.

I also was trying to learn something about Asian pears and whether they would grow in Colorado. I found very little.

It seems that the older posts have been deleted.

Anyone else having the same issues?

>>Anyone else having the same issues? Yes.

The search engine is terrible, always has been, I'm sorry to say.

It's usually a better idea to go to Google and limit the search to Gardenweb.com. For example, the following returns several candidates.

Bob,

You are genius. I have tried Google before and put Gardenweb in the search, but not "site:gardenweb.com..." It worked like a charm and I found the post I was looking for.

Thank you!

Here is a link that might be useful: top five pears - Fruit & Orchards Forum - GardenWeb
