East Coast vs West Coast peaches
Hi everyone, I've learned tons from this site and thank you all for the information.
My specific question is about two peach varieties. The Baby Crawford peach and Rio Oso Gem peach are very highly recommended to me by multiple West coast sources. These both seem to fulfill the chill requirement for where I am in Virginia, and it sounds like some people in my area are indeed growing them.
However, I have not heard many East Coast reports that these fruits are to die for in flavor out here. I am beginning to suspect these fruits do super well say in Santa Clara but for whatever reason they are fine but don't become anything special on average out here in the East, with the exception of this one report by scottfsmith on two other Crawfords and the Rio Oso: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/fruit/msg091626021808.html
I ask because I'm thinking of omitting these two varieties from my plans.
Thanks a lot.
