Pear Trees Grown From Seed - Pollination
I am currently growing pear trees which I started from seed. They will be transplanted next spring to start an orchard for wildlife. I know they will not produce true to variety and since I am planting for wildlife, I am hoping to get a little more variety which may be more desirable at different times, e.g. smaller pears which taste better (to deer, turkey, coyotes, etc.) after a few frosts.
The main variety that the seed came from was Comice. I also started a few trees from Anjou seeds.
My question has to do with pollination. Is there any chance that the Comice pears will pollinate each other because there will be enough genetic variation since they are not all clones?
I know the Anjou pears will pollinate the Comice but I am afraid that I might lose too many when transplanting and there may not be enough to pollinate all of the Comice pears.
My backup plan will be to buy other varieties.
Thanks for your time!
