We get a lot of pears and although they taste great the skins don’t look like the pears from the market We don’t spray could that be the problem

I love pears, bought a bag of them last night.
Yes they are very good enjoy
We have a big apple tree and two large pear trees.luckily the deer cannot reach the higher ones.we used to have several peach trees that used to produce so many but I ended up losing them..sending this next time I’m out I will look for a few more trees and I will have to fence them in as the deer will destroy them with their antlers

Here in Michigan, I thin mine out early so instead of 50 smaller pears I get 25 bigger ones.
Thanks great idea I need to find out when to prune the trees so hopefully next season it will be better
Take care

When we had pear trees and they were loaded we used clothes line poles to prop up the branches until the pears were ready. Then we used the poles to pull the fruit off. If you pick when they are slightly green you can wrap them in newspaper to ripen
