I have a kukoso#20 …
… 2yrs old
It froze back to the ground last year at 0 deg. F
It has grown 8 + ft this year,
It is on its own roots ,I believe , since it had the same " huge" leafs as the year before.
It has these odd bulges at each node. They look odd . But the tree is healthy looking. I believe it may just be the way it grows ? Higher nodes don’t have these bulges.
Comments ? ?
Anyone growing this zone 6 or colder ?
Winter hardy as it gets older ?
Fruit quality ?
Got Bulges ?
The stem with the bulges is about a inch and half .and dominant .
You can see another shoot( which I will remove )smaller with out bulges. Both grew this year.
