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
I have a Nashi, don't know what type, has no pears about 7 foot high, healthy. Looks like a pollinator is helpful. How can I tell what sort so I can buy an appropriate pollinator or doesn't it matter. From: Pyap SA
Hi Roger, very difficult to tell what variety. I would suggest maybe try a self pollinating variety to help it cross pollinate. eg #NashiPear833 That way you will have a fruiting tree and it should cross pollinate your other tree. Good luck Greg
