Planting, Caring & Pruning Fruit Trees in the State of Georgia; Blueberry, Blackberry, Apple, Plum, Pear, Fig, Peach & Nectarine Trees

There is a common misconception that trees and plants should be planted in spring, when many tress are actually better off when planted in the fall. So many trees improve the aesthetics of your landscape, especially fruit trees with their charming spring blossoms. So why not benefit from the elegant blossom trees and enjoy their juicy fruit in their season? It is always best to read the labels, and ensure the fruit tree of your choice is right for your region. Fall is the most optimal time of year to add a quaint little orchard in your landscape!

Milam’s Tree Service would like to inform you on what trees are best for Georgia.

Plum Trees – Japanese plum varieties recommended for planting in Georgia are Methley, Morris, AU Rubrum, AU Producer, Spring Satin, Byrongold and Rubysweet.
Pear Trees – The best pear trees for south Georgia include Hood, Floradahome, Baldwin, Spalding and Warren. In middle or North Georgia, it is more optimal to plant Orient, Carrick Waite, Kieffer, Magness, Moonglow, Starking Delicious or Dawn.
Fig Trees – Only a few fig trees are well adapted to Georgia. Celeste and Conadria are two of the best. Extend the season by planting a late ripening variety like Alma.
Peaches & Nectarines – There are of course a wide range of peaches and nectarines that do well in Georgia, but require a little more care.
