Good photo. No doubt you allowed the wasps to do their thing unmolested.

yes this was a pear (not an apple as i said before)they must have liked it, they sat on it for hours and demolished it.

Though far from an expert hymenopterist I'd say they are Common Wasps. Maybe they have their nest in or near your house.
