Temperatures and stonefruit winter kill

Came across this. Maybe it has been discussed here? Don’t think i’ve seen it.


Keep in mind that they had a warm spell in late Jan when temps were between 50F-60F… Those buds probably lost their winter hardiness after that and would have been smoked by those negative teens…

Blazingstar does not like cold…i have no idea what China Pearl…


More info is always good, thanks!

Some of these are North Carolina varieties. They are on my list should my Redhaven not cooperate.


There is also this publication to come out of MSU after the 2014 polar vortex v 1.0 winter.
