Thank you Artjak. This has been going on for about 10 years and still can't get it right.

I have a conference pear tree in my garden but am never able to know when to pick them. They are either to ripe, (look good on the outside but rotten inside) or not ripe enough and never seem to ripen. Can any one advise me whether there is there a way of telling when these should be picked.

Cherry tree

Posted: 23/04/2013 at 08:36

I have 7 espalier fruit trees (3 apple, 2 pear 1 kent cob nut and 1 cherry tree) all planted about 10/11 years ago from a nursery. All but one gives me ample of fruit and that is the Cherry tree. I get plenty of blossom and plenty of fruit appear every year but when they get to about the size of peas 90% shrivel up and end up with just a handful of cherries. This has happened ever since I have had it. Every year I threaten that I am going to cut it down if I do not get any fruit from it. Can any one help please.

greengage tree

I have had a greengage tree for about 10 years and in the last 7 years have had a hundreds of fruit on it every year. Last year I noticed that the leaves started to dye off early around August and the fruit was rotting quite quickly too. This year there is no sign of any buds or leaves appearing. A lot of the ends appear to be dead, but I have scratched some of the branches below and they appear to be green underneath. Should I cut back hard or just prune the dead branches off or should this just be left alone. Thank you
