What causes the pears on my tree to shrivel up and are still small . The Conference Pear tree is 2 yrs old & is planted in an small sheltered area



Possibly too soon for it to bear? It should only have been allowed to let two or three grow to maturity this year in any case.Might have been still concentrating on establishing. Better luck next year.

I agree with Steragram. Your pear trees are too immature to support pears. They usually need to be 4 or 5 years old before they start producing.
