Today I put in my first order for the year and (for me) its a big one (mostly peaches). It’s also very exciting. I wanted to tell you folks about it and would enjoy hearing from anyone who has any of these trees and what you think of them. Of course I mostly want to hear good things, but I have pretty thick skin so if you want to tell me some of my choices are very poor ones, I can take it. Every single tree I ordered was done after research and reading- much of it here on GF, So pretty much every tree I ordered had someone who said very good things about it. What is funny is that most of the same trees also had someone who trashed them and said it was a terrible variety! ha. Its amazing how many varieties have someone who thinks it is great tree and someone else who thinks it is an absolutely awful one. Of course much of that might be due to the different ecosystems where it is grown (different climate, soil, rainfall, insect pressure, diseases, etc) as well as owner inputs (fertilize, mulch, pruning, watering, etc). WE all know that one man/woman’s favorite fruit tree can be a disappointing failure for another person.
Anyway, here is what I’ve gotten SO FAR this year. Love to hear from you if you have any of these:
PEACHES (all on Guardian Root stock)
Scarlet Prince (white)
Plums (on Guardian)
Pink lade on m-111
Good or bad, lets hear some thoughts, especially if you have any of these, or know something about them.
