Pollination of Catillac pear trees

Your Catillac pear tree is in flowering group 3. It is a triploid variety and needs two pollination partners nearby which must both be of different varieties and able to cross-pollinate each other as well as the Catillac. Alternatively choose a single self-fertile pollination partner. The following varieties should pollinate this pear tree.
