When a fruit tree needs a pollinator, it should be the same species, but a different variety. You can't use two of the same variety/cultivar. A pineapple pear is self-fruitful, which means you don't have to have a pollinator, but it will produce more and better if you do. Flordahome or Hood Pear trees are examples of pollinators. You can check with your local nursery about which pear tree to choose as a pollinator.
