Answer: Pears bear more fruit when another cultivar is growing nearby. I'm not sure why the information tag said otherwise. Since Seckel blooms in mid-season, you should plant another mid-season blooming type nearby. Mid-season bloomers include Highland, Warren, and Harrow Delight. You might contact Raintree Nursery (391 Butts Rd., Morton, WA 98356, ph# 360/496-6400) for their advice about the best pollinator for Seckel.
