pear tree fruiting.

Why is my pear tree flowering for a second time? It flowered in spring and formed fruit but bad winds and rain blew them off the tree. It happened last year too.

    A lot of plants, trees in particular seem to be getting "confused " by the erratic weather.  My Apple Ribston pippin has had a second flush of a few  flowers the last 2 years.  I have posted pictures in the past of flower and fruit on the same branch in late August/ September. The fact your tree lost its first fruit may have stimulated second flowering.  The sad thing is you won't get a crop. If  any fruit forms pick it off. All we can hope is for a re-set next year.

    Our pear tree, invincible, is well known for a second flowering, hence the name.
