I don't know why it works better for pears.  It just does in my 
backyard.

The system works well with peaches.  Lorette demonstrated this over 
100 years ago.  You can read about it in his book that was published 
in 1925 in English (Lorette System of Pruning by Louis Lorette).  I 
borrowed a copy through interlibrary loan.  It is an interesting 
system that is not used commercially today because it is labor 
intensive.  For the hobby grower, I think it makes alot of sense.
