Thank you, Fowler’s sounds great, I just called them. I live in the Bay area, and probably she can go up to Fowler’s and buy the trees on Friday and I will plant them on the weekend. Or something like that.
For the Asian pears, the choices at Fowler’s are:
Shinseiki, Shinko, Yoinashi, Olympic
People on this forum rate Olympic (Korean Giant) highly. And her friend grew an Asian pear in the past and maybe she has a recommendation.
And for cherries, the choices are:
Bing, Benton, Lapins, Rainier, Sandra Rose
Any recommendations? She had a big cherry tree for years but the birds and the ants got most of them recently. It was multigrafted originally but I don’t know how many varieties survived. She cut it down a few months ago, the inside of the wood had been eaten/rotted away by something. She can get good cherries at the fruit stand on her corner.
I think I also want to get her a prune plum, maybe Muir Beauty.
And maybe another apricot. The choices at Fowler’s are:
Apache, Nicole, Orangered, Robada, Royal ( Blenheim)
I’m leaning towards Orangered or Robada. She has a big apricot tree already for a pollenizer, but she doesn’t know the variety and I’m not sure when it blooms
