This tree was a little past full bloom, in a neighbor's yard, on the 22nd. Bradford pears have beautiful leaves, and the individual flowers are nice, also. The fruit is probably edible, but it's quite small. (See our Bradford pear set, for examples of all of these) I can't smell much, so I don't know from personal experience, but I'm told that they stink. The trees seem to grow to about 5 yards/meters in height.
