Does a dwarf keiffer pear tree need a pollinator and if so, exactly what does it need? Also, how long after planting before it will bear fruit

Dwarf kieffer pear is self-fertile and will set fruits without a second cultivar of pear. However, all fruit trees bear heavier crops if a second, different variety is nearby. Your pear tree will probably start producing 3-4 years after being planted. Enjoy!
