Between 1769 and 1814 Thomas Jefferson planted as many as 1,031 fruit trees in his South Orchard. This orchard formed a horseshoe-shape around the two vineyards and berry squares. It was organized into a grid pattern in which he planted eighteen varieties of apple, thirty-eight of peach, fourteen cherry, twelve pear, twenty-seven plum, four nectarine, seven almond, six apricot, and a quince. Our pear is made from solid white marble and features a carved wooden stem. Especially nice in groups. 5"h x 3 ¼" diameter.
