It depends where you are.

A fact to consider is that most fruit trees will not bear useful crops without frequent applications of chemicals.

Another fact to consider is that pear trees, in particular, take around 10 years to produce their first crop of useful size. You plant, as the saying goes, pears for your heirs.

Growing fruit is hard work. Make it easy on yourself by sticking to things that do well in your climate and that require minimal fuss.

For me that's tart cherries, crab apples, and certain kinds of plums.
