of the few fruit trees i ever planted.. i never really expect a crop for 2 to 3 years ..

mail order trees simply.. usually [i have never ordered form a specialist source] .. do NOT have the root system capable of bringing a fruit to.. wait for it.. fruition ... lol ...

usually.. if you do get a flower or two.. they abort ...

a tree is said to be twice as large underground.. as above ... so think about that 4 foot mail ordered whip.. you have a lot of roots to grow.. for the tree to become vigorous ...

Pears are about the slowest to fruit of the trees....often 4 to 8 years.
