Can you help identify the attached PEAR photo malady. Last year it was bad, almost 100% fruit failure on 3 of our trees (the oldest ones) - all the young ones (perhaps due to newer/different varieties?) 1. there are fissures (pics attached) 2. it's fairly solid & black textured/leather-y (oops cannot find a photo) (dunno if this is a more developed/severe case of #1 above/attached) many thanks - i cannot find any matches in google images or on common orchard websites.
