Tree Fruit: Apples and Pears
Apples are a popular fruit that can be grown successfully in most areas of the state through proper care and purposeful variety selection. Site selection, soil prep, and proper pruning are just a few factors growers and home gardeners should consider for apple production.
Because pears are long-lived trees with generally less pests than apple trees, they are an attractive option for many in Arkansas. Finding the right pear varieties for you and your location are important for successful production.
