Pears and Apple trees

6459 Views 33 Replies 19 Participants Last post by  Moccasin

I planted 2 pears trees and 6 apples tress with one of them beeing a pollinator.

The year I planted them, I got a few pears. No apples.

This year is the second year and only 2 apples appeared.

How long does it take to get fruits? Is it normal nothing appeared? All the trees had flowers.

Must I put some special fertilizer? I kept the trees well watered.

I am in Georgia.

Thank you

usually you need different varieties to pollinate correctly. I usually read the better fruit nursery catties to find which pollinates which the best, but i think you can call your local extension agency and get better local info. Also, most trees take a couple of years to bear fruit at a minimum.
