About Comice Pear:
Comice are a late ripening pear that starts dropping its fruit in October and finished up in November. Completely self pollinating but gets better fruit sets when planted with another Pear. This tree is growing in a low water table location, looks to be around 50 years old and has seen its share of wet springs without (root rotting problems) and would make for a good candidate to try in moist soils (not real wet but moist) in what I call fringe/transition ground between where its wet and where its dry.
