Hello Jo

Re Verdun's Lottery Win - I think we need to head down to his log cabin for a celebration - he's bound to want us to help him spend it

vigorously growing pear tree not fruiting

Posted: 02/06/2015 at 06:31

Most pears need another pear tree from the right group in order to be properly pollinated - some (e.g. Conference and Concorde) are at least partially self-fertile and will produce a reasonable crop without a pollination partner (but an even better one with).

Your difficulty in providing a pollination partner will be knowing the variety of the pear tree you have in order to select a partner from the right group. 

Info here

Remember that pears will not ripen to the eating stage on the tree - they need picking before that stage and storing - explanation here

Hope that helps
