Pear tree,,,,, Hey there Kalaga....... I'm not expert at this kind of thing but it sound as if you might need to go out and buy yourself a bag of fertilizer then put it all around the tree and even into the soil. I planted lemon trees and an orange tree and it's been giving off a really good crop year after year. It might take anywhere from three to seven years before you will begin to see anything but I'm sure that the fertilizer will help. Happy mylotting....... and Good luck with it.

Hello there, your pear tree should be good to go if you've already given it some fertilizer. I would think that you should redo it about once every three years. I planted the lemon and orange trees both at the same time. It was over seven years ago. The first few years it just kept growing and we never did see any fruit. Then about the fifth year it began to prosper. Now we are able to get fruit off of it at least twice a year. If you live in a real sunny area you shouldn't have any problems. Then again a pear tree can grow in the northern regions also. If your orange tree is giving off little small fruit it might just be the kind that only produce the small kind. It might be good to use for jelly or making jams I would imagine.Anyhow, good luck with it, all in due season you'll reap a harvest. Thanks for your response! Happy mylotting!

If you just planted it this year, it probably won't fruit until next year, if then. Fruit trees need time to settle in. Keep taking care of it and have patience.
