Okay. I mentioned in the introduction to the forum thread, while responding to @Steve333 and @Oepfeli, that I should form a new one. This thread will enable folks to compare notes between other members on here about what fruits and varieties of said fruits work and don’t work in their particular region/climate zone/sunset climate zone etc.
For example, I have found in my location, zone 6b in NE Kentucky, that I have had an issue with raspberries and blueberries getting established. Blackberries and strawberries do very well. Considering fruit trees, I have apples, pears, peaches and pluots. But, mine are still relatively young, and not all have bore fruit, so I can’t give a complete report on those.
Of course there might be someone close to me that can grow blue and raspberries very well. So, it could be I’m doing it wrong, but it could also be that my soil and climate aren’t conducive to good results.
Hopefully folks can garner some insight on what might work for their particular location. Feel free to share your results.
