apple and pear tree suggestions for central ca coast

1janetta0(9bsunset16CA)December 30, 2012

I'm looking for 2 new apples and a pear.
The apples I have are Gordon, Fuji, Gravenstein and Winter Pearmain.
The pears I have are Comice and Sugar Pear.
I love the Gordons, juicy and sweet and prolific.
Fuji is great as is the grav. Winter P is not my fave.
Comice is great and Sugar Pear is only in it's second season.
So, what can anyone suggest. I need low chill. My summers don't get very hot as I am on the coast and we get fog.
All ideas are greatly appreciated.

Perhaps Axel will chime in and help you. He grows hundreds of apple varieties inland from Santa Cruz. I'll link his website below. That would be a great source of information for your situation.
