It is always best to pollinate fruit trees of the same genus with each other (apples with apples, pears with pears) but pears can cross-pollinate with apples as long as both trees bloom at the same time. Some (but not all) crabapple trees work for cross-pollination. A few varieties have sterile pollen.
Asian pears are typically round in shape (similar to apples) and have russet coats. Most Asian pears require another pear (Asian or European) for good pollination. European pears can be self-fertile, but unless noted below, it is recommended that customers have at least two different pear trees to.

Pollination is the transfer of pollen from the male flower part to the female flower part. The male part is called the anther and contains the pollen grains.
The female part is called the pistil and contains the stigma, which is sticky to collect the pollen grains. Pollination must occur in. Biology of Apples and Pears is a comprehensive reference book on all aspects of pomology at the organ, tree and orchard level.

It also deals with. Apples are regarded as self-unfruitful. Most apple cultivars will set a small crop with their own pollen.
However, for maximum production, plant at least two different apple cultivars within 50 to feet of one another to ensure cross-pollination and fruit set. Guide to Apple Pollination. Before buying a single apple tree (Malus domestica) to put in your yard, consider how that tree will be pollinated.
