THis is just unreal. The local weather station is predicting 25 degrees for Saturday night!!! Most of my stone fruits are at petal drop to shuck split stages. According to those freeze damage charts, I’ll lose around 90% of my fruit at those temps.
It is all my fault…I’ve been running around telling everyone I know that this year I dodged the late freeze and was finally going to get some fruit this year!!! Talk about counting chickens before they hatch!
I was just about to order a $350 dollar bottle of Luna Sensation fungicide , but I think I’ll put that on hold. This is 3 years in a row I’ve had some to most of my stone fruits lost to a late freeze (April 9 is fairly late for us). This is the kind of thing that makes you ask yourself if it is really worth all this!!!
Good luck to others in the southeast who have trees blooming or, like mine, at shuck split or beyond!!!
