Pear tree recommendation please
Several neighbors have pear trees that produce reddish pears. They say they are low maintenance and produce a lot of pears. Can you recommend the type of producing pear tree that works well here in Loveland. Mary

Magness, Ayers, Summercrisp and Honey Sweet are all pears that should do well in the northern Front Range. Most pears require cross-pollination and two trees should be planted (of different cultivars); the flowering season on pears is short and they do not have a lot of nectar. Two types will ensure better pollination and fruit production.
