    Default Introduce myself to the forum

    Hi guys, my name is Jose and I am from Spain.
    I am a big fan of fruit trees and I have more than 20 years of experience growing fruit trees, exchanging varieties with friends from other countries and participating actively in forums of my country and in forums of foreign countries.
    I live in the central area of Spain, specifically in the region of Castilla la Mancha (Zone 8) and I have a orchard of 4 hectares with a lot of fruit varieties of all kinds.
    In Spain I am the owner a Hotel-Restaurant, but my two great hobbies are the cultivation of fruit trees and sport fishing in the sea in all its modalities.

    At the request of the moderator Scarlet (I send you a greeting from here)
    She consider that it is convenient to coment some of the varieties of my orchard (it will be a little boring, but let's try).

    Most of the varieties that I will be putting in this post, are available for exchange this winter (except the very small plants grafted this spring).

    So that it is not so monotonous, today I will only put my collection of pears:

    Let's go with the pears:

    Hi Jose and welcome! That's a very fine pear collection. I have a collection of only three pear trees in my garden, but they are very big and produce huge numbers of pears. I don't know what varieties they are but they all look a bit different and they mature at different times.

    Do not let my collection of pears overwhelm you, you'll see when we get to my collection of cherry, pluots, etc ......

    But we will go little by little, since I want to get to know the members of this forum, which for the moment has seemed magnificent.
    I know only a little about the "rules" of this forum, and Scarlet "the moderator" has welcomed me and gave me the guidelines to follow.


    So I hope that more people join this post, which I hope we all enjoy.

    Please if someone have any question about any variety, you can ask what you want

    a greeting
    Jose
