I’m sorry, I think I must have been unclear. Pink lemonade did start to bloom about a week earlier than the others. Powder blue about a week later, then centurion a week after that. When the frost happened, 100% of the Pink Lemonade were in bloom, so all the blooms died and I got no fruit. About 50% of the Powder Blue had bloomed, so those blooms died, but I still got fruit from the blooms after that. Centurion was untouched.
Georgia had a hard frost after a period of warm weather. A lot of the peach farmers were very hard hit, as well as farmers with SHB blueberries (which bloom earlier than rabbiteyes in general). I don’t necessarily think you’ll have a problem with Pink Lemonade most years, but if you do have a late frost, it will be affected more than other rabbiteyes that bloom later.
(I think a read somewhere that Pink Lemonade was a cross between a rabbiteye and a high bush, so perhaps that is why it blooms among the earliest of the rabbiteyes.)
Don’t get me wrong-I’m not dissuading you from buying PL! It is a very beautiful, disease free plant, and the frost hit everyone hard. I do not think the PL will get zapped most years.
