Q.My Pears Get Spots That Look Like Maybe A Bite And It Becomes Hard Around The Spot. What Is It?
The tree blooms nicely. Pears start growing out and all at once there are these spots. As the pear grows those spots become hard and indented. I never see any kind of bugs or flying insects. Also, do I spray the tree before it blooms with a dormant spray? And, how do we trim them?
