Thank you for your question to Ask the Expert.

Raintree Nursery has a handy chart for pear pollination: http://www.raintreenursery.com/Pollination_European_Pears.html

According to this source, both Bosc and Comice will pollinize Bartlett. D'Angou is not listed in this chart. The Comice and the Bosc will also pollinize each other as well.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
