What Is Best Management For Bartlett Pear Trees

Question From: C. Dick - Hawthorne, Florida, United States
Q: my bartlet pear trees have produce an abundance of fruit. The pears are hard and have thick skin (July 2018) but are sweet to taste. When is the best time to harvest (Alachua county)? What is the best routine for managing my trees(ie:pruning, fertilizing etc.)

A: I live in Michigan and have no experience growing fruit in Florida. Contact your county extension horticulture agent for this information. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
