We have two pears trees in front of our garden that flank the entry gate. One is a Bartlett and one is a Comic. The Bartlett has plenty of fruit this year, but the Camice is very sparse. The same was true last year. We have never trimmed them, I wonder if that could be the problem. I learned this spring that they are supposed to be trimmed, but it was too late in the season to do it. Any advice?

sorry cant help but I have a neat recipe for pear tarts :

unbaked mini tart shells
place a tablespoon of brown sugar in the bottom, cover with 1/2 teaspoon butter
add some chopped fresh pear or slices
add 35% whipping cream to the brim, a pinch of salt
bake 350 until golden

amazingly delicious…..

I think you are supposed to prune the trees before they blossom in the spring.
