Any chill hours vs bloom observations?
I ran the calculation for Alpine, TX (KTXALPIN5 on Weather Underground) using "get chill" in the link below. For Alpine, TX the totals were:
below 45F = 814
45-32F = 612
Utah = 364
We get enough cold, below 45F, but too many nights below and too many days above effective temperatures. So our effective chilling, the Utah model, is pretty low.
The apricots outdoors, not talking my greenhouse, are starting to bloom. It looks like 90-95% flower bud abortion with scattered and strung out bloom. I'm talking Tomcot, Robada, and Orangered; the high chill types.
Anyone else have chill hours and bloom info?
