alright....time for my monthly stupid question....or, like Chris Berman said : there are no stupid questions, only stupid people who ask questions......Guilty as charged....
I have 5 pear trees growing in my yard that I have espaliered on a fence in my front yard.
2 are asian pears and 3 are european pears
my stupid question is: can asian and european pears pollinate each other....just askin'
my actual question concerns ripening time in my zone....I am in nashville...look at my profile to find zone number
the five are: New Century Asian pear, Hosui Asian pear, Moonglow, Starking Delicious, & stark honeysweet
the blurbs from stark's say they will ripen from mid-aug to mid-sept....think this is approximate for my zone?
