Columbus, GA -( Improve your land. It’s a goal for most landowners, and it is particularly true for hunters who own their own property.

Food plots and supplemental feed are all the rage, but an easy, effective way to attract and hold wildlife with little effort and longevity is to plant trees that bear fruit wildlife can’t resist. Chestnut Hill Outdoors has two new trees, Deer Candy Persimmons and late-dropping Thanksgiving Pears, food plot trees every deer hunter should consider for their property.

Any hunter who has sat in a stand over a persimmon tree dropping its sweet, pungent fruit knows this is truly deer candy. Deer seek out persimmons, and once they find a tree that is dropping, they will visit regularly until the persimmons play out. The scientific name for the persimmon is Diospyros, which means “fruit of the gods.” Persimmons are easy to grow, and will bear fruit deer can’t resist in just a few years.

The Deer Candy Grafted Female American Persimmon tree from Chestnut Hill Outdoors will bear fruit in only two to three years. The fruit is a medium-sized persimmon, 1.25-1.5 inches long. The fruit has a sweet, nutty flavor that deer and other wildlife can’t resist. This is a very productive persimmon that drops fruit early in September and October. It is cold hardy for Zones 5-9.

The Deer Candy Persimmon grows 30 to 50 feet tall with a spread of 20 to 35 feet. It grows best in full sun, and it does not need a pollinator. The nutritious fruit is highly favored by deer and other wildlife. Please call for prices and availability.

Want to keep deer on your property well into the fall as they continue to seek out irresistible fruit? The Thanksgiving Pear tree from Chestnut Hill is a must for landowners who love to hunt over a food source that is a magnet for deer. The Thanksgiving Pear is a hardy sand pear that ripens in late fall and holds on the tree until after Thanksgiving. This variety was found at an old homestead along the Alapaha River in Georgia. It is disease resistant, and the fruit is excellent for deer and wildlife. The pears ripen in October and will continue to drop fruit into December.

The Thanksgiving Pear is hardy in Zones 5-9. It grows to a height of 20 to 30 feet with a spread of 10 to 20 feet. Plant the Thanksgiving Pear in full sun with other pear varieties for best production. Trees are grafted. Please call for prices and availability.
