Help!! Problem of my pear tree

helwhhle(6)August 16, 2012

I have these problem last year, then this year too.

My pear tree 5 in 1 is 5 years old. Starting bloom from last year, beautiful flowers, it grows into small fruit, a little bit large than pea size. Then, stop growing, A lot of them on the tree,

I am getting frustrated since last year, I search the web and did not find answer. I am afraid it will happen again next year.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Did they turn brown? Do you have a picture?
I suspect that if they are still green, maybe you got a flowering pear like a cleveland, aristocrat, or bradford pear. I hope not, but it's not the end. You could graft fruiting types on. Maybe I'm jumping the gun.

5 in 1, as in a cocktail fruit tree?

where is it planted?
how's the soil?
how much sun does it get?
how much and how often do you water?
how often do you fertilize?

Wendy, pears will drop unpollinated fruit- could that be a factor here?

If it is an ornamental pear as Noogy suggests then your five in one is probably mislabeled, and his suggestion of grafting onto it is worth considering. (If you've never grafted before this is a great opportunity to try it- pears are very user-friendly in this regard!)

Good luck,
