We’ll be getting 2 Shui Mi Tao peaches today. We are in Maine, but classified as a Zone 6A. However last winter we had about a month of -27 and -24 degree weather.
I have a Hesse Plumcot and a Paviot Apricot that made it outdoors with some cover and are doing beautifully this spring. A handful of trees died - a plum, a Duchesse D’Angouleme and a White Doyenne pear, a Redhaven peach died. The other 65 or so apple, peach, plum, apricot, and pear trees survived and are leafed out.
We have an unheated high tunnel greenhouse. Should we plant the 2 Shui Mi Tao peaches in there or outdoors with the other peaches? What kind of winter cover do you provide for them?
Any other advice on their culture would be much appreciated.
