2023 NEW to your garden / orchard this year?

You give me an idea to graft it over to Pakistan Mulberry.


I ordered arctic babe and nectazee from raintree. Have not gotten them yet, but excited to see if I can get some fruit from container trees.

Besides the new Polonais apricot, I am now waiting to take delivery of a bareroot
double Ù espalier 5 year old Granny Smith apple. I cannot wait to see it.


I am hoping for that too. Given how small the root systems are and it is flowering I think that is a good sign.

Black raspberries gifted to me by a crazy pawpaw grower.

Pluerry. I got a candy heart, and on @Vincent_8B suggestion got a sweet treat that should be more reliable.

Pawpaw trees. Need I say anymore.

Cosmic crisp apple. It’s the start of 3rd grow season so not new. Just looking for some apples now.

I also plan to have a jujube tree soon any day. Thinking Li or honeypot. Raintree still has some in stock as well as restoring Eden.


High hopes for the new 2023 fruit.

I went with
1 jiro persimmon
1 prairie star persimmon
4 seaberry each a different variety
1 arctic jay nectarine
1 sweet heart cherry
1 ayers pear
1 flavor king pluot
1 dapple dandy pluot
1 green gage plum
1 au rubrum plum
1 mango paw paw
1 wabash paw paw
Several new grapes, currants, elderberry, and lingonberries.

I’m kinda all over the place mainly trying new fruit I’ve yet to taste or really even see in person. The paw paws, persimmons, and figs are all completely new to me so hoping i get to enjoy them. Planted an olympia and VDB fig last year.

Happy to hear any experiences with what I listed, they are all new varieties for me.


This should be the end of my New Stuff added for this year… not counting a bunch of apple and persimmon grafts i am adding when the time is right.

Note to self… planted

2 Purple Royalty
2 Joan J
4 Bristol blacks in that row.

Tomato cages on top for the night to hopefully make sure nothing messes with them. I will get them mulched good soon.


I headed back my two Apriums.

There’s going to be a Shiro, Flavor Queen and Flavor Grenade in a row with them as a prunus hedge of sorts. Those are coming from Adam’s County Nursery whenever they start shipping to the Philly suburbs.


No pictures but I grafted 5 Apple scions recently. William’s Pride, Gold Rush, Arkansas Black, King David, and Winter Banana. The buds look are swelling a little after the rain so who knows. But I have faith that they are working.


Five fig cuttings, I’m bringing them out in slightly more sunny area. I also add more holes for drainage. Today I finally gave them some water, not much but not a small tablespoon anymore. They are in my peony bed and they are very much like peonies, they don’t like too much water.

Almost done with this garden bed (& paths around it) for raspberries - Anne, Caroline, Heritage, Autumn Britten and Jaclyn:

Getting 3 Chicago Hardy fig trees and some peach trees (which type they will be is unknown as of yet - they are a gift from a friend who has access to leftover trees from a local grower who ordered more than they can plant)


Another 3 fig cuttings I’m bringing out of the shade, this area only has morning sun, shady in the afternoon, I also gave them a bit of my rain water.

Black Madeira
Col De Dame Noir
Grosse Monstreuse de Lipari


I-258, I’m going to dig around this area and move to a pot, dirt and all, in late June. I just dipped this in root hormone and stuck to the ground, this variety is quite vigorous.
