A few questions -- what have you been feeding your plants, are they
outdoors or in a greenhouse, and what sort of weather and watering are
they experiencing?  Are your other varieties heirloom/OP's or hybrids?
What is your geographical location?

My yellow pears seem a bit more susceptible to chills and abundant rain
than my other varieties, so they may just be more vulnerable to yellowing.
Here's hoping it's an environmental/nutrient issue and not a disease
