Years ago when we built our home we had landscaping done and had lots of trees planted. One in particular was this one on the corner of our house called a flowering pear tree. Well, I have to admit I really didn't pay much attention to it, all I knew is it grew very beautifully every year. Pretty berries then pretty pink flowers. Its lovely. I did notice that there was also some white flowers every once in awhile on it. But I don't know much about trees or flowers. Then last year I found some small apples on the side of my house, very strange how could that be, it was called a flowering pear,no fruit just flowers. I took a closer look at it and I realized its 2 trees in one. I never heard of such a thing before and noone I have shown has seen anything like it before. The apple trunk has grown right along with the flowering pear tree. If anyone knows anything about this please tell me what you think. Here are some pictures:

They either got placed into the same pot before you bought it or they were actually grafted together. That's not uncommon. Very cool though ;o)

I have never seen that before. I can barely grow flowers never mind a tree!
