It was a valiant effort, but in the end, all the buds are dead from the three night 26 degree F trifecta. My peach is a Redhaven on unknown rootstock. I’ve had it in the ground for two seasons but it is probably at least 4 years old.
My neighbors unknown 10 year old peach put out blooms when mine did, but 60% of hers survived. Same thing happened last year too. She got fruit but I got none.
Is it possible that mine just needs a few more years to become bud cold Hardy, or is this a sign of the things to come? Is it time to switch peach trees altogether to something like Contender? I could also graft wood onto my unknown rootstock
Here’s the sad before picture.
