Honeybee visitation of pear cultivars

Honeybee visitation of pear cultivars

Horticultural Science 29(1/2): 98-102

Intensity of visitation and foraging behaviour of honeybees was studied by parallel observation of 13 flowering pear cultivars at Keszthely, Hungary between 29 April and 3 May 1996. Bees visited an average of 3.9 of 50 flowers per branch in 10-minute periods of observation. Some cultivars (Lentier doktor, Pringall, Passe Crassane, Miklos) were much more frequently visited than others (Conference, Red Clapp, Abbe Fetel).
