    Should add I've got a Muscat Bleu 3 yrs old now, got the first real crop this year. Quite impressed, very early and good sized berries that dont require much thinning, down side is the pips.

    The rules say that the green part can not exceed the length of the blanched part so the leaves had to be cut.

    Pear Tree Pruned Too Early - advice and rant needed!

    Not a great eater of pears myself, but if I do I like those yellow ones that are really ripe and full of juice. Some people like them crunchy like apples.

    My friend thinks he's really clever. He said the onion is the only fruit\veg item that can make you cry. So I threw a coconut at his face.

    Yeah pick any green fruit to ripen indoors and then put the plants on the compost heap, just cut the woody stems up a bit.
