Tree selection for Iowa orchard
I am buying some trees for my Aunt who lives in Iowa; just 40 miles from Omaha/Council Bluffs.
I am looking for self-fertile, if possible, but they must be hardy and able to handle the winds that whip continually. Also, disease resistance is a big issue.
I have come up with these:
Debbie's Gold Apricot
From Trees of Antiquity:
Wolf River Apple MM.111
King David Apple MM.111
Grimes Golden Apple MM.111
I read an old post by tonytran, who must live near, and he said Red Ace plum was the best. Anyone know where I can get one? What pollination would it need?
Thanks for your advice.
