The Q&A Archives: Non-fruiting Pear Trees

Question: Why have my 2 six-year-old Bartlett Pear trees not produced any fruit yet?

Answer: Your problem is easily remedied by planting a different variety of pear nearby to cross pollinate. Sometimes Bartlett trees will self-pollinate, but as you've found, the waiting can be frustrating. To make matters slightly more complicated, Seckel will not cross pollinate with Bartlett so choose a variety other than Seckel. Better luck next year!
