Do you need to plant pear trees in pairs?
You have to plant at least two varieties of pear trees, to ensure cross-pollination and fruit production. The trees should be spaced 15-20 feet apart when planted.
Can you get self-pollinating pear trees?
Just like apples, pears are predominantly self-sterile and need to be paired with a pollination partner to produce fruit. Conference and Obelisk are the only varieties that are truly self-fertile and will produce a decent crop unaided, but for bumper crops we recommend you partner up.
What will pollinate a pear tree?
Other pears need a different variety blooming at the same time to provide pollen because they cannot be pollinated with pollen from their own variety. Most pears will produce more fruit if they are cross-pollinated, even if they are self-fruitful.
Do you need a male and female pear tree?
Most pear trees need cross-pollination from nearby pollen sources of common trees, but some pear trees usually do not need cross-pollinators to produce fruit because they are self-fruitful. Both pear tree species have self-fruitful cultivars.
How close do pear trees have to be to cross pollinate?
With very few exceptions, pear trees must be planted near a different compatible variety in order to produce fruit. For a standard-size pear tree, the pollinator must be within 100 feet, according to Arbor Day Foundation.
Can Apple and pear trees cross pollinate?
Apple and pear trees cannot cross pollinate one another because they are not part of the same species nor genus. Apples are in the genus Malus while pears are in the genus Pyrus.
Will 2 Bartlett pear trees pollinate each other?
Overall, your best crops will come from plants that have a partner or two. The key to successful cross-pollination of pear trees is choosing varieties that bloom at the same time.

Why is my pear tree not fruiting?
If a pear tree is weak, stressed, or diseased, it will produce very little fruit or poor quality fruit. If a pear tree has no fruit, it may also be due to the fact that it did not receive the necessary amount of cold weather to break dormancy and encourage new growth.
