Your later blooming Asian pears can pollinate with the early blooming European.
A late Asian will pollinate an early European, and vice versa.

Great! Does anyone know if Seckel is an early blooming European pear? In Asian pears, I've got Hosui, New Century (or Shinseiki), and Starking Hardy Giant (or Olympic or Korean Giant), but since they're still young, I have no idea when they bloom.

Does anyone know if Seckel would be pollinated by any of these?
