Quoting: In spring they were abloom with pretty white flowers like those of a real pear tree, though their scent is nothing like real fruit blossoms at all.

Funny story.. a couple of years ago, when the trees were in bloom, my Brother and I were at an Arboretum near my home. They are beautiful in full bloom! He could hardly wait to stick his face into those blooms...and if you could have seen the look of shock, when he realized they SMELL terrible! LOL I laughed for several minutes! They are certainly not Cherry Blossoms. He stills talks about how shocked he was by the terrible smell of those beautiful flowers!
