Berries on a Bradford Pear Tree

I have a Bradford Pear tree that's 13 years old. I cannot believe the thousands of berries falling off this tree since November until January, and still falling. I don"t recall seeing these berries in past years. Why are there so many berries now? Does anyone know? The tree is about 40 to 50 feet tall.

Mine too. Am wondering if they can be planted?

Bradford pear trees are primarily grown as ornamental trees for their spring flora. The fruits, which are inedible raw, can be used to make wine and seasonings. (http://www.ehow.com/facts_5809230_b ... rd-pear-trees-poisonous-humans_.html)
