RE: Compile list of no spray/low care fruit trees for Mid-Atlant (Follow-Up #1)

Max, a local community group asked me to compile such a list - see the link below for my thoughts. Generally I would say that your choices are good ones, and there are a few other ideas on my list below. I dried persimmons this year and they worked out very well. The astringent varieties dry better so I would get one of them if you mainly want to dry the fruits.

I put european pears on my list though toward the bottom. I'd like to hear how they did for you, it sounds like you didn't have much luck with them? The main problem I have had on my pears is pear leaf blister mite, and recently stinkbugs (which are problems to some degree on all fruits for me now).
