pear pollinaton

Asked July 15, 2015, 1:11 PM EDT

Landowner here has a variety of pear that is growing well but isn't getting pollinated. Golden Spice variety; sources checked indicate it's "self-pollinating" however this is not the case. Which varieties of pear should be suggested as good cross-pollinators for the variety she has?

Bartlett, Bosc, Anjou, Harrow Sweet, Flemish Beauty should all work. Golden Spice is a good pollen source, but not for itself. Asian pears should not be used as a pollen source.
