Self-sterile. It is necessary to plant another variety of pear trees nearby for fruit production. Prune dead branches in winter to prevent disease. Water regularly during periods of drought during the first years. Plant in ground if the soil drains badly. In the fall, install a spiral on the trunk to protect it against rodents, during the first years.
