Post Best Pears for Pollenation
I have a pear tree in my yard with about three types, and a bosc pear right next to it, but am not satisfied with the fruit set.
Is there a really good pollenator pear, like Winter Banana for apples?

Winter Nelis was the pollinator of choice for a long time. It's an outstanding winter pear, but the tree is a horrendous thing with spindly, hard-to-train growth and a terrible propensity to get sooty mold on it that makes dark streaks on the fruit.

I'll see if I can get a dwarf then, just for the pollen.

thanks:

Recently got an anonymous letter about a hybrid Pear on Vashon Island that the bees seem to like. Whoever sent the message, please contact me off list.
Sounds interesting.

:lol:

Post Re: Unusual hybrid pears in SW Washington
A while ago someone told me of an unusual hybrid pear in SW Washington and that they were going to be up my way with a couple of them, but I never heard back.
If anyone on this list recalls the conversation about these 'volunteer' hybrid pears, please contact me.

“I have a pear tree in my yard with about three types, and a bosc pear right next to it, but am not satisfied with the fruit set.”

Are any of those types Bartlett? I’d consider a Bartlett pear tree one of the best pollinators – it’s even self-pollinating!
