Honeysweet pear fail
I'd been waiting 7 years for this tree to fruit. At last, this year, a dozen fruits. I bagged them, the squirrels got some, and I waited.
Finally, this month, with everything ripening so early, I started to wonder if they were ripe, even though very very small. I lifted them up to see if they'd separate. Are you ripe yet? Nope and nope. Finally, today, one of them broke free.
I took a bite. Ackptooie! Totally tastless and mealy. WAY past it.
Looks like I'll have to wait til next year.
