Oriana's Oriental Orchard
Oriana Kruszewski began growing Asian pears in her backyard as a hobby. She now has forty acres of land just east of Galena, with five acres producing seven different varieties of Asian pears. Oriana thins the branches of her fruit trees to ensure that the fruits are larger. She also weeds around the trunks of her trees. In addition to Asian pears, Oriana’s Oriental Orchard grows black currants, paw paw, and goji, as well as black walnuts from the wooded land surrounding the orchard.
