dry farming stone fruit
I've stated several times on here that the best stone fruit in CA is grown dryland in coastal valleys. Finally have a name to go with that, Mike Cirone who farms in See Canyon only 2-3 miles from the ocean near San Luis Obispo.
The video is mostly about the water savings but does show him selling fruit at a farmers market.
His trees are widely spaced in order to ration out the water over 6 months without rain in the summer. Summer temperatures that close to the coast would be mostly 70s and 80s by day and 50s at night, pretty mild.
My trees in the greenhouse are spaced more closely so I'm using more water but I've applied only 11 inches in 2012 after wetting the soil deeply last fall.
