Melon Pears

I planted a melon pear earlier this year. It was about 10 cm high. It is now more than 30 cm and has plenty of fruit. I am waiting for the fruit to develop light purple stripes and turn soft before I pick them. They taste a lot like spanspek. The plant can be multiplied by taking and planting slips.
