Honeybee visitation of pear cultivars

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

Honeybee visitation of pear cultivars

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).
