Asian pears-how to reduce number of baby pears.

Posted by allyn12 (My Page) on

I have come across two asian pear trees on an old abandonned homesite and the trees are 30 ft tall. They have multiple pears like cherries all over the branches, except one branch where they are growing in twos, and there is no way I could get to them all. Any suggestions?
I live in Virginia. When will they be ripe?

Generally you want to thin to the point that the fruits are at least 6-8 inches apart.

With the tree being so tall you might have a problem there. Not knowing the variety it is hard to tell when they will ripen but usually later in the season.
