Hi, The spots on the leaves of your Asian pear could be any number of problems, but my guess is that it's a fungal problem and at this late date, you won't be able to clear it up this year. I would be sure to rake up all fallen leaves and begin a spray program with a home orchard spray in the spring before bud break. Follow label directions. Of course, without seeing the tree in person I can't be sure so perhaps it might be wise to take a leaf sample to your local extension service or full-service garden center for up-close analysis.
