This hardy, dependable early season pear is named after Thaddeus Clapp of Dorchester, Massachusets, where it originated in the mid 1800s. The red variation was discovered in 1939 near South Haven, MI by Adrian Kalle. Besides being named after Kalle, it has also been marketed by Stark Brothers as 'StarKrimson'. In our area Clapps is indeed a favourite. The sweet, juicy, melting flesh is pleasantly mild with a smoother texture than Bartlett. These pears will not store long. Pick before totally ripe. Eat fresh for several weeks and can the rest.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
