Non-bearing Pear trees

Pear    South Central Texas

Ok, We have one Keifer, and 2 LaConte pear trees 4, 2, and 3 years old respectively. They are in full sun. They developed many blooms but don't set fruit. We are totally stumped as to what to try. Any suggestions? – Donna

deactivated commented,
blooms drop due to stress and not right conditions..anything else you could describe that you may feel be going on?

I'm not familiar with those varieties but assume they need to cross-pollinate to set fruit? Some pear varieties will self set but not as reliability as other fruit. If they are close together they may be flowering at different times: https://books.google.com/books?id=PHk...
