I live in a dry climate (just moved) and we have a large pear tree full of normal sized pears. They are falling off the tree, (It's mid August) and those that are still on the tree are as hard as a potato, and quite tart. Should they be falling off the tree already? Also, the tree looks like it hasn't been trimmed. Should it be? Is there something special I should do to it to get good fruit from it next year? Since our summers are dry and hot, should the tree need watering? The leaves are nice and green, and there are LOTS of pears on it without it having been watered all summer. (it's the one shown in the avatar photo) Advice?
