Pears are abundant in anti-inflammatories, are a good source of dietary fiber and provide vitamin C along with a delicate sweet taste to their flesh. Pear trees are susceptible to fungi and diseases such as fire blight. Pests like the San Jose Scale and European Fruit Scale will reduce tree vigor and fruit production. These scales, when present in large numbers may even kill the tree. Properly spraying and pruning will ensure that your pear tree can protect itself against these maladies and can yield an abundant harvest for years to come.
