    I planted 4 or 5 different varieties. The goal being that they drop at different times. They were bare root but 6 or 7 ft tall.

    Pears will do better here than apples.

    Low country, stoney hill, and trophy are three I remember. I'll have to check some tags for the other pear varieties.

    Persimmons did well on the farm at Deep Creek, they would browse it everyday. I planted bare root sawtooths and chestnuts but the farm got sold to Brother E. before I got to see the results. I am sure probably about the same soil setup that you have.

    Definitely will be planted a LOT of persimmons. Will be planting a lot of oaks but not sure sawtooth is the way i want to go. They produce a lot of mass but it all drops at one time. Chestnuts will be part of the plan. This will be a long term work in progress and I plan on trying assorted varieties.
