Walk around Dartmouth Park, near Highgate in north London in late April and you can see, through gaps between the houses, mature pear trees in full bloom…When the houses were built in the second half of the 19th century, could they have been built around an existing orchard, or did new residents all decide to plant pears? Either way the neighbourhood is alight with blossom each spring, and in glut years trays of pears marked “help yourself” appear at gateways,”.
