The Q&A Archives: Apple & Pear Trees

Question: I want to plant a pear tree and a couple of apple trees in my backyard. Can you make any recommendations of varieties based on the zone I reside in. I am at the northern edge of zone 4. I belong to the National Arbor Day Foundation but all the apple and pear trees in their catalog are for no farther north than zone 5.
Thank you.
