Had I suspected there might have been a controversy over this subject, I would have saved some of the seed from my tree to test.  There are some in the mulch pile so I’ll see how many grow next Spring, assuming they are not buried too deeply.  Otherwise I’ll have to perform the seed tests in 2018.

"Apparently I should have mentioned...................The isolated pear
tree out in the countryside produces viable seed."

So so you believe the tree to be self fertile?  That is something I've not
heard of but I certainly consider it possible.  When isolated pear trees
have born fruit here, I never have even checked their seeds so I really am
only speaking from the literature.
