Tiramisu using fruit bread

Tiramisu using fruit bread

The combination of fruit bread, pears and figs is the basis for a wonderful, autumn – or almost pre-Christmas – dessert. With this tiramisu you sweeten every rainy, foggy Sunday afternoon and after building the first snowman of the season, the numb fingers that arise can be thawed in a jiffy while eating this dessert.

 
When Pears are Harvested and When They are Rripe

The maturity, more precisely the harvesting maturity and the eating ripeness, is the most difficult topic when it comes to pears and there is a good reason for this. In the case. There are good reasons to say that this topic makes the pear a bit difficult, because in the case of the pear fruits, the harvesting maturity and the eating ripeness are, in most cases, not only far apart from each other, but difficult to establish. The pear is a climacteric fruit; it matures on the tree, but also after the harvest, under the accelerating influence of the ripening gas ethylene, which it produces by itself, but also by other fruits (e.g. during storage, but also in the fruit bowl) .

 
The 3 most important tips for training and pruning pear trees

Restrain the centre

Pear trees naturally have the urge to grow strongly and quickly upwards. If they have the choice, they encourage the upper shoots (controlled by the hormones in the shoot tips) far stronger than the shoots below. If you want to raise a small garden tree, you have to counteract this tendency, the so-called apical dominance, in order to maintain growth and fruits also in the lower area and not let the tree grow towards the sky. The most important measure is to reduce the central leader again every year, especially in the first 3-4 years, in order to give the lower side branches more possibilities for development.

 
How we searched for the name of the pear in England... and SOMEHOW also found it

Finding a new name for a new variety is quite a thing. It must come to mind. For example, on the 888 km long drive from Buchs to our nursery in Bad Zwischenahn, or at 5:00 am in the morning while sitting at the computer finishing the last pages of our new catalogue – sorry, I mean Garden Book!
