Hi donside, that is actually very good news as you shouldn't let a fruit tree produce any fruit in its first year so that the roots can develop properly. If all those pears were left to grow, it would probably kill the tree, or at least exhaust it and prevent it establishing properly. Personally, I would either remove the rest of the fruit, or just let 2 or 3 of them mature. It is quite likely they will drop off anyway.
