I have a youg pear tree planted in the ground in a south facing garden. It grows well but for the second time in two years all the ealry sprouting pear fruit has been eaten (or disappeared anyway). It seems to happen about 3 or 4 weeks after blossoming when the fruit is tiny. Any ideas what it might be or tips for stopping it? I also have an established apple tree nearby which is absolutley fine and never any trouble.
any help would be appreciated - so hopefully i can get a crop next year.
