I am trying to obtain information about appropriate pear varieties for the 
Austin, Texas area.  I have been able to round up very little reliable 
information regarding this subject.  Most info I have is second hand or 
vague.  I am told that we receive about 650 chill hours a year.  Would I 
still be able to plant lower chill varieties like Orient or Pineapple which 
I am told need about 350-450 chill hours?  Any information or advice would 
be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
