My impression is that Travis’s Southern Pear page is becoming less and less active on account of him becoming tired of it or maybe on account of him just not having time or the physical stamina to keep up with it. In any event, I started the FB page to help make a resource more widely available for growing southern pears. My sense is that folks get mislead a lot from nurseries and garden centers with respect to growing fruit generally and pears in particular. So the easier it is for prospective pear growers to find and access information about growing pears and which ones work the best, all the better.
Those of us who have been at this for a little while help others a lot just buy giving candid information about the varieties we grow or have tried to grow and to provide pictures and advice without having a marketing incentive to make varieties look better than they really are and so on.
In any event, I’m glad folks are enjoying the thread. God bless.
