All time favorite pear! Must pick then store correctly for weeks before they are ready to eat but they are worth the trouble. Delectable!

Will Seckel and Comice be good pollinators for one another?

BEST ANSWER: My pear trees will be one year old this spring (2020) so they are too young to produce fruit. I live in Nashville where fire blight is a problem for the family of fruit trees that pear trees belong to and pollination is not my concern but which varieties from those that I purchased survive fire blight. Moreover, since I purchased several other varieties besides these two, even after they produce fruit, I would not be able to tell which varieties cross-pollinate each other and which do not.
When do I pick my Comice pears?
Janet A on Oct 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: About Sept 28 in my part of Wisconsin. Pick them when mature but not ripe, then store in the refrigerator for 30 days, remove to a 70 degree room until they are ripe. This avoids wasp, lady bug, crow, etc damage and also provides great tasting pears - the very best pears!
Previous note by Sunny M on June 8, 2019 says these pears must be picked and stored correctly for weeks before they are ready to eat. What does this mean?
Addie L on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No European pears ripen on the tree; you must pick them prior to ripening and let them mature off the tree. Here is an article in our Growing Guide about harvesting pears: https://www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/pears-ready-to-harvest
What is the rootstock for seckel
And comice?
