Greetings there Orchard Folks,
New guy here with hopefully something that doesn't "stump the experts."
I have 3 Bartlett Pear trees in my NE PDX backyard. Younger trees that are maybe 4 to 8 years old.
We have a problem......every year we pick fruit and we've tried picking at different times...
They rot from the inside out.
You cut open a pear you think is ready to eat and it's rotten at the core.
Any thoughts as to what we might do
Feel free to ask me questions about my "orchard" that I haven't shared.
I have had Monica Maggio over to discuss the problem...but it kinda stumped her and some folks she asked.
She thought maybe a "univeral pollinator" might need to be grafted.
Thanks for any help,
