I've looked but haven't found anything so I figured I'd ask and see if anyone had some answers. Most all my life I've seen pear trees around old farm houses with large, hard, but very sweet fruit. Does anybody know what variety of pears these are? Also, I've seen a good number of apple trees around my area. The fruit are usually green, fairly small and quite tart. Again these are usually around old farm houses. Any ideas as to what kind they are? I'm in South Georgia just north of Vidalia, solidly in zone 8b, but I would love to see about getting some of these old timers to plant around our place. Thanks in advance!
