When and how is the best time to prune a pear tree. I bought one 2 years ago. No fruit yet, when do they fruit?

Pears are best not pruned until fruiting begins. If it is very vigorous, take out some shoots not required for the framework of branches.

Apply some potash in spring. Pears usually need a few years to make a branch framework before beginning gradually to fruit.
