My pear tree in the summertime was giving pears which had white spots on the skin and were dark brown on the inside, with insects in the pear itself. What can I do for next year to stop this from happening.
Also the pears were very small and a small crop this year...how can I boost the crop for next year.
Please note this year I painted the bark at the roots with black paint as I was told this prevents ants from crawling up. Has this affected by crop.
