    I'm on your 2014 thread, am still giving it the benefit, still haven't had an edible pear. I get a lot of dieback on entire branches, leaves all turning black. If I had to rip out any one fruit tree in the orchard of forty trees, that would be top of my list but I've waited so long now that it might as well have another year. Its planted near what was the houseproud neighbour's septic tank soakaway so it's possible that its growing in Harpic saturated soil.
