What is this?

Asked July 30, 2020, 5:14 PM EDT

There is this brown scabbing on my pear fruit. I’ve been treating the rest of the tree with anti-fungicides, and I’ve been wondering if this brown scabbing is just the result of the same/different fungus? If it is caused by a fungus, will it still be safe to eat the pear?

Looks like normal russetting that occurs in the pome fruits. Here's a link that helps explain it: https://fruitguys.com/2013/09/apple-russeting-2/
Hope this helps.
