Here is another exciting option for the far north pear enthusiast. The real name for this Russian variety resembles a random string of consonants, but when translated, it comes out as True and Faithful, so that's what it is called here. The medium sized, greenish pears exhibit an appealing golden-yellow bluish by picking time. Fine grained, creamy flesh is sweet and very juicy. Storage is good - approximately 2-3 months. True and Faithful is fast growing, hardy, and dependable.

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.
