Best low chill pear for Southern California
« on: Today at 10:07:48 AM »
I live in coastal Southern California. We get 200 to 250 chill hours a year. I am looking for a low chill pear to plant in my backyard. I prefer a more soft flesh than a crisp one. Looking online I was thinking maybe the pineapple pear would be for me. I will need it also keep it pretty small by summer pruning. I'd like to keep it under 10 ft total. Do you have a pair that you would recommend?
