Ornamental Pear Tree

What type of ornamental pear tree do I have? Are they at all edible? My father planted this 30 years ago but recently has passed. I never thought to ask what type of tree it was and now live here. I was thinking of making cider.

I have bit into these before and thought, shoot I better ask before I do anything with them. They are hard and crisp but do have some pear flavor.

Thank you!

How wonderful to have such an heirloom Pear Tree.

I would suggest checking with your local County Extension Office to inquire the varieties of fruit trees commonly grown in your specific region.
These links have more information for you including a link to help you find your nearest Extension Office.
