One day he found a duck while collecting medicine, but ordinary ducks should not appear in such deep mountains. He was very curious and found a pear tree. But it did not have the name at that time. He took this strange fruit back to his shop, cut it and licked it at the risk, he took a bite and found that it was sweet and delicious. because it looks like a duck, so people will call it: Ya Pear.

The pear trees in the northern pear orchard are fully occupied with new green leaves and white pear blossoms.
