ACN peach offerings & disease resistance
Good morning. First comment is that I'm not attempting total organic growing (nothing against those who do).
However, the more disease-resistant a tree is, the better, obviously...so on that note...
I've gotten a few peach recommendations from scottfsmith & have been able to source a couple - thanks scottfsmith! This would be for an order for next spring, I missed the boat this year.
That said, I've noticed that Adams County Nursery, which is only about an hour from me in PA, sells a bunch of peach cultivars, many of which I haven't seen elsewhere. They have this 1-10 scale ranking of things like hardiness, firmness, and spot resistance, but not much on other disease resistance.
1. Which peach diseases are the biggest concern in my area (Central MD)?
2. Do any of the peach varieties ACN offers perform especially well here compared to others?
