Native to Georgia, this wild pear is sure to be a great addition to your food plot. Last Supper pears bear small, oval fruit in clusters, creating an ample bounty for wildlife that come across these trees. The fruit provides excellent nutrition for deer and wildlife and its delicious taste will entice them throughout the hunting season.
New trees can produce fruit in 2-3 years depending on care and climate. The success of new trees is heavily dependent on the care received during and after planting.
