Pear tree bearing marble size fruit
My trees used to bear good sized fruit, but in the last few years they blossom like a flowering tree but produce miniature sized fruit. Nothing that I know of has changed. Any ideas?

If you have had good growth of pears in past years, and now have a stunted crop, most likely their is some depletion of soil quality.
Lack of pollination could also be a cause for your small pears, so make sure bees are welcomed to your garden. Pears don't send out a large amount of pollen scent, so it's important to attract them by other means.

I would suggest a soil to determine proper fertilizing of your trees.
