|Both apples and pears produce heavier crops if cross pollinated with a different cultivar. If you know the names of your fruit trees you can find a suitable pollinizer and plant it; if you do not know the names of your trees, find trees that bloom at the same time as your current trees and plant them. Hope this does the trick!
