Q What strange furry fruits are grow­ing among my pears?

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved - PAT MOORE, BY EMAIL

APears are grafted onto quince root­stocks and it looks as though your tree has pro­duced shoots from the root­stock that have grown up through the pear and are now flow­er­ing and pro­duc­ing fruit! Al­though quinces are ed­i­ble, chances are those from a root­stock won’t be all that nice. Have a taste by all means, but it would be best to saw off these stems at their base.
