[NAFEX] Pear recommendations for a single home tree?

A bit of further research reveals that Bartlett and Seckel pairs are 
listed in Dave Wilson as being self-fruitful in the arid west. I assume 
that the dryness of the air somehow enhances their pollination. Should I 
trust that for Seckel?

Seckel still looks like one of the tastiest fresh pears and probably 
would be hard to find in a store. Another interesting one is Blake's 
Pride, which seems to have a "rich, aromatic" taste.

Feedback? Info?

Regards,

Jay
