Growing Pear Trees
Last spring (2008) I planted three pear trees. A Baldwin, Pineapple and a Hood. The Hood was a 3 ft. bare root planting and the other two I found at our local co-op in gallon containers and were about 4-5 ft. tall.
The Baldwin and the Pineapple pear trees bloomed nicely this spring and now they have very young pears growing. The Baldwin has about 15-20 fruits but the Pineapple has over 50 which seems like a lot for the size of the tree. Both of these trees are about the same size (2in. dia. and about 6-7 ft. tall) and the fruits now range in size from the tip of my thumb to the tip of my little finger.
So here is my question, should I remove some the fruit from the Pineapple pear tree?
