I started a pear tree from a seed about 4 or 5 yrs ago, It is 9 ft tall has really grown and spread out and is healthy. Why doesn't it bloom and bear fruit? thank you for your time.

Planted from seed, a new pear tree can take anywhere from 8 to 15 years to begin producing fruit, depending upon the variety chosen. So although your tree looks big enough to bear fruit, technically it isn't mature enough. Be a little more patient with your tree and eventually you will be rewarded with flowers and fruit.
