European pears include 'Harrow Delight', 'Stark Honeysweet', 'Moonglow', 'Harvest Queen', Magness', 'Buerre D'Anjou', Seckel' and 'Harrow Sweet'. Like apples, pears are self non-fruitful and usually will not set a good crop of fruit with its own pollen. Therefore, at least two different varieties must be planted near each other for cross-pollination.
