what fruit trees will do good in the Adirondacks, NY?
I might put an order in with Stark Bros. and they didnt really answer my question... I'm going to try to setup a low/no maintanence orchard for my friend's parents (I doubt they will spray or give much attendance to the trees).
I know pretty much all the stuff i list below is zone4 hardy...
But Im not sure about blooming time and frost...
Supposedly the last frost date (50% chance) is May 20th... Pretty late compared to Philly where i live.
Are any of the cold-hardy varieties i listed very iffy because of their bloom/flowering times? Worried they will get no fruit.
