Fruiting Plants

Welcome to Wingard’s Fruiting Plants

We offer a wide variety of fruiting plants, including blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, pears, plums, apples. lemons, limes, pomegranates, figs & pecans. With the exception of the lemon and lime trees (which will grow here, but require protection on cold winter nights), all are good to our USDA Hardiness Zone (8A) and produce fruit. It’s interesting to note that even though Georgia is called “The Peach State,” South Carolina grows more peaches! There are many different varieties of these plants, so if you don’t see the one you are looking for, be sure to give us a call.
