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

This is actually an old seeding tree, similar shape fruit to that of williams. Definitely a decendent of a European pear.The tree is about 6m tall and slightly infested with pear slug worm. It bears heavily, but the biggest fruits are all on the top of the tree, making it impossible to pick and the birds always get them first. I covered some fruits with newspaper on the lower branches. But very disappointing, the fruit is very very sweet, almost too stweet, and the texture is very dry and hard, not very pleasant to eat. I don't know if it has anything to do with watering because I didn't give it any water even during the harsh Adelaide summer. Anyway, I am going to cut it back to waist high in winter and multi-graft it with nashi Nijiseiki and Kosui.
