How would I start a seed for a fruit tree? I got a couple of pear seeds and I'd like to try to grow something. Do I need to soak them first? Need info

I don't think pears will be true to type from seed. I'd be curious as to what you end up with. are the seeds dry, or straight out of a pear you ate? Just thinking that a hard dry seed may need nicking or filing.....

Nick with a fingernail clipper or file with a (strong, not those cardboard things) nailfile. you just want to do the tip of one end, then soak for a few hours before planting. Alot of larger, harder seeds benefit from such treatment (like morning glory) but I've never seen a pear seed planted :)
