Black-leathery pear skin bacterial or fungal problem

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.
