Hi, I am brand new to Growingfruit.org.
Please if possible mark my location as just south of Twin Falls, Idaho, Zone 5.
I have a young orchard, approx 4 years. I was hoping to plant olives(based on information from Dr. Falahi at University of Idaho at Moscow-he is at 2000’ whereas I am at 4000’) but they have not done well. I have an Hachiya Persimmon that did well through last winter although it got no flowers nor fruit. Varieties of Almonds, Walnuts, and Hazelnuts do well here. I have pears, peaches, nectarines, an apricot, a Dolgo Crabapple, and Italian Prune. I would love to try a Marcona almond and if I can find one I will put Christmas lights on it with my persimmon. I understand I need a pollenizer. I wonder if anyone has an idea where I might purchase them. I hope this isn’t too long.
