Question & Answer
When a tree says Pollination Required: Partial does that mean that you need to buy 2 of the same tree and the bees will do the rest? From: FLINDERS VIEW QLD
This pear is partially self fertile and will set fruit by itself however the crop of pears that you get is not as good as it could be if you had another variety of pear other than the Williams Pear growing close by. It would be good to grow the #NashiPear833 close by so that the bees can cross pollinate it and give you a bigger crop
