moorpark apricot chill

john222-gg(Mississippi 8a/8b)February 8, 2013

what is the lowest chill hours needed for moor park to make fruit.I live in south MS our chill is 3 to 600 hours and I think it getting less.They are the only ones I can find locally.Have already had bad experience with high chill trees.Was just wondering if it was worth a try.Have been told that some people grow them all the way down to the coast.All help will be appreciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
