At my previous home, Hood bore heavy crops and I wasn't aware of any other fruiting pears in the neighborhood. There were always seeds in the fruit. After it was in the ground about 5 years I added Hood pear trees to my nursery stock and began testing Flordahome in 15 gallon pots. Compared to the Hood in my climate I found the taste poor and very susceptible to Fireblight.
At my present home I seriously doubt there are any fruiting pears nearby. I'm not sure if there are seeds in the fruit I picked today but I'll post after cutting it open.
