There is nothing like some major winter chill, followed by a good spring warm-up, to bring out the fruit-tree flowers. This is the ‘Hosui’ Asian pear. It’s never bloomed this heavily before. I have also seen the first signs of blossoms on the ‘Korean Giant,’ a variety that had not bloomed in its four previous springs here.
