Which other pear can polinate a Moonglow Pear tree?
Elismar on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Usually, people plant the Moonglow to pollinate other pear trees. However, it is supposed to have lovely fruit--but is not self-fertile. I planted it with a Harrow Delight and a Harrow Sweet, all of which are supposed to be compatible.

Strong healthy tree
My Moonglow pear tree is only about 2 years old. While there were plenty of blooms on the tree this year, there were no pears. I purchased it so it would help pollinate a couple other pear trees I have. These trees have not produced any fruit as of yet, as well. I Googled what complementing pear trees were best to help pollinate my trees. This is why I purchased the Moonglow. However, they all appear real healthy, but no pears as of yet....
