Yes I did look at the link roughrider but my tree does not look like that one, mine only goes black at the end of the new branches. It looks fine until the pears are about 1" long - then it's all down hill!!!
Sorry pansyface but I don't know the variety but I did buy it at a Garden centre and as I said it had 3 lovely red pears on when I got it.
I have only just noticed the thorns on the other trunk but I think I will wait for the leaves to come out and then I can tell what it is!
