Dwarf Pear tree
Do I need 2 trees to bear fruit?

Pear trees vary in whether they are self-pollinating or require a second variety for cross-pollination. "Unless you purchase a tree with two compatible varieties grafted onto a single rootstock, you will need to plant two different, compatible types of pear in order to obtain any fruit. Check with the nursery where you purchased your tree or your local extension office to ensure that the trees you select can pollinate each other."
