There is a little pear tree in front of M Benazet's house here. It has never been very productive, but this year it has suddenly produced a massive quantity of excellent quality fruit. We have just had a brief 'tree-shake' and have collected kilos and kilos (I am guessing between 30 and 40kgs!) of pears which we now need to let ripen naturally in a cool place before they are ready to use. I am tempted to have a bash at making perry but don't know what variety of pear we have and whether they would be suitable for that purpose. But it could be worth a try!
