Pear tree pollination
I recently moved to a house in Jamaica Plain, MA (right next to Boston). I cleared out a few scrub trees and would like to plant a fruit tree in that new space. I have a pear tree ~50 feet from where the new tree will go, but this pear tree has never produced fruit. I don't know if it is a flowering non-fruit bearing tree, or a fruit bearing tree that has never been pollinated.
- How do I identify the existing pear tree? I will link to a photo of the tree in a follow-up post.
- Can a non-fruit bearing pear tree pollinate a fruit bearing pear tree?
