Bud hardiness report for stone fruit
I am happy to finally be able to contribute something to this forum.
After this horrible spring most of my trees did not bloom. There were a couple of surprises though.
First prize for hardiest buds in the peach category goes to Saturn peach. Second prize goes to O'Henry (can you believe it?). Disqualified for non-performance are PF-1, Earlistar, Garnet Beauty, PF-17, Silver Logan, NJ-252, and PF24-C.
First prize for hardiest buds in the plum category goes to Pipestone. Second prize goes to Green Gage. Disqualified entries are Toka, Elephant Heart, Satsuma.
First prize for hardiest buds in the apricot category goes to Hoyt Montrose. Disqualified are Tilton, Chinese, and Goldcot.
Update: Surefire Cherry fired May 20th! Disqualified are Black Gold and Kristin.
