I probably have about 30 pears and Apples planted in South Alabama. A few on every plot various species they do very well. Most produced in 2 or 3 years. All of the mature trees are 5-9 years old. We planted a few more 2 years ago when I snapped these pictures.
Careful with the fertilizer. My Mother N Law fertilized a pear by the cabin and the fruit broke all the branches. They were the size of youth footballs.
Putting a fence/cage around them is important. The bucks love to scrape them....we lost a bunch before we learned. Never had a problem with water.
