    Hi Art, It might be blister mite which causes red spots which turn black.  There are no organic or chemical controls for most pear tree leaf problems, so treatment is extremely easy and cheap as there is none!  It's recommended to remove affected leaves though.  The good news is that the fruit crop shouldn't be affected.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
