Non-fruiting Pear Trees - Knowledgebase Question

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

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!
