Just found this website and happy to be here. Looks like there is a bunch of great info here from other passionate growers.
I've been a coastal Georgia pear-a-holic since 2009. My property is located about 65 miles inland from Savannah, GA. I've 39 pear trees and 9 Fuyu / Jiro persimmons currently. Have lost a few to fireblight- they were Low Country's and Trophy deer pears purchased / planted in 2009 from Edward Fort Nursery. Lost one other to tractor negligence on my part. Experience is an excellent teacher.
I have multiple varieties planted and have purchased all but a couple of the varieties offered by The Wildlife Group in Alabama. Zero problems with their trees. Highly recommend the Dixie Delight they offer-very close to a high quality Asian pear in taste and appearance. Will be planting another batch of them next month along with Warrens and a couple of their new varieties.
Marcus, from what I've read, you are in or very close to Statesboro which is just down 301 from me. I'm just north of Sylvania. BTW, I sent a request on FB to join the So. Pear Interest Group.
Will throw some pics up in the next few days. Look forward to great conversations, learning more and helping others through my experiences.
