I have a pear tree that looks droopy and isn't producing pears. Why is that?

It's difficult to say why your tree looks droopy. Not enough water, perhaps, or too much fertilizer? In order to produce fruit, European pear trees need a pollinator. If your tree is flowering but not setting fruit, you may need another pear tree to help with pollination. If your tree is not flowering, it may be unhealthy. Sometimes disease or insect problems interfere with fruit production. Send us a more complete description of the problem and we'll try to help.
