This is the best pear seedling growing from the ones I planted this Spring.

It's about 6 inches tall, and despite growing in a very less than ideal area, with lots of competition from more vigorous wild nearby plants, it's still growing very well and seems to be very disease resistant and shade tolerant so far, and is starting to put on some good new growth!
