Well, these trees are only one year (or maybe two years old, idk), so I don’t know if it would be an issue. I mean, if the variety is rated for my zone (6), then I think it should be OK.
My main concern is if they will even produce in my location, not their winter hardiness. Last year I wanted to try apricots, but decided against it. I think pluots would have a better shot here. I know they’re not the same, but plums grow wild here, 'cots do not. We’ll see.
If I want these particular pluots, I really don’t have a lot of nurseries to pick from. There’s BL, TofA, and Grow Organic, all in CA. Adams County has some of them, but they’re only on Citation, which I’d rather not have.
