Does anyone know what's wrong here?

Co. Durham, United Kingdom

My Grandad has a Conference Pear tree in his garden. The fruit is fine, however, about a third of the leaves are like the picture I've attached. Does anyone know what this disease (I assume) is? What can be done to sort it out?

Many thanks in advance for your help. : 0 )

On plant Conference Pear



"Pear leaf blister mites invade leaf tissues and young fruits, causing characteristic yellow or brown blisters"

Just found this extract in a Readers digest encyclopaedia of garden plants and flowers.

Another book say's to spray with thiophanate-meythyl at the end of March.

Hope this helps.
