[NAFEX] seed preparation help

Warren is NOT self-pollinating - it has poor pollen, like Magness, and has
to have a second variety for pollination.  I have a heck of a time getting a
regular crop from mine and I have it in the midst of a collection of pears.
It's a wonderful pear when it sets, but here in Oregon it has been erratic.

Thanks to everyone who responded with seed preparation help (and help
and comments on the Southmeadow debacle).

I've got seeds from several Pyrus species and hybrids tucked away in
damp peat moss in the fridge.  I'll give them some Benlate water in the
Spring like Lee suggested.

As I pored over nursery catalogs lately, I noticed that one catalog
claims that 'Warren' pear is self-pollinating.  Is this true?  Does it
actually set good crops by itself?  (I have a small yard).

Thanks again,

Zone 8 (Our first frost last week- but it didn't even kill the sweet
potatoes or basil)
