Dwarf everbearing pear question
I have about 10 pear trees in my young orchard but the first to blossom is a Colette "dwarf everbearing" pear. My brother bought it for me from Miller's in New York state. A couple of questions that I have are, first of all, what rootstock would Miller's typically use to dwarf a pear? I don't believe that their website says. Would it be quince or possibly OH X F 333?
Secondly, what is an everbearing pear? Am I to presume that this tree may continue to blossom a few more times, thereby producing fruit much longer than a "normal" pear. Well, if that's true and since it's not a self-fertile variety, what is going to pollinate it? I don't get it.
Lastly, does anyone have any anecdotal or first hand experience with Colette? What should I expect? Is it a good variety for fresh eating?
