My fear is that bradford pears will mix with regular pears, and since bradford pears come up everywhere the mixed seed will, too. We have wild pears here in the south, and I'm afraid the mixed ones will render the next generation unusable. I have eating pears planted and would not dream of planting bradford pears.

Luciee, I see your point. They very well could effect the quality of your good fruit trees. You are smart to avoid the ornamentals such as this Callery.
