The Clapp pear was developed originally by my ancestors in Dorchester. They are well known in the Boston area. I have been looking for them for years. Needless to say I am a Clapp

I have a customer that wants to plant a dwarf Clapps. She has a Bartlett already on the grounds. I understand it will cross pollinate, but should she also plant a Moonglow or Buerre Bosc that you suggest are the best varieties to utilize with Clapps? In other words, do you see a significant drop off in the fruit production of the Clapps with not having the Moonglow or Bosc to cross pollinate with as you suggest or is the Bartlett she currently has sufficient?

Is a Bartlett pear tree a suitable pollinator for this (Red Clapp's) pear?
Jennifer P on Dec 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. They should cross pollinate with each other.
