Non-bearing Pear trees

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

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...
