This was discovered by Dr. James Kroll in Texas.
Wildlife pear that ripens in late fall and holds on the tree until Thanksgiving!
The real benefit to using Dr. Deer pears is that they have small fruit in clusters and tend to hold onto them well into late fall.
Fruit is excellent for deer and wildlife, and will bring them in throughout the hunting season. Grafted. Hardy in Zones 5-9.
