Dwarf Bartlett Pear
I have a dwarf Bartlett pear which seems to have fruit starting. I only have the one. Is it possible that one of the apple trees is the pollinator and will the fruit be good?
Dwarf bartlett pears are self-fruitful, but will produce heavier yields if pollinated with another variety. Is it possible that there is another pear tree up to 200 feet away?
An apple tree cannot pollinate a pear tree. Each species can only pollinate others of its own kind - apples pollinate apples, pears pollinate pears, etc.
And, yes, the fruit will be good. I have no reason to expect otherwise.
