Pear fruit thinning, what to do
« on: June 27, 2020, 21:06 »
Hello. I need to thin the fruitlets on my pear trees - Louise Bonne de Jersey, Comice and Conference. I知 never brutal enough so end up with lots of tiddlers. This year I知 going to be ruthless.
Can anyone identify what the problems are on these two trees? Shall I just remove any that show any blemish ( even though they might be the biggest) and leave the 祖lean ones?

It looks like pear scab.  If you leave the blemished fruits to develop they're normally fine for immediate use but won't keep long as the cracking lets in rot.

If you dispose of any blemished fruit that you thin, and also the fallen leaves in the Autumn - don't compost them - that will help reduce the annual cycle of re-infection.
