are these fruit trees viable in Pennsylvania?
I was looking at some fruit trees and most nurseries list the zone information but not the chill hours so I had to dig up some of that info googling. I was curious if these would do well and fruit in suburban Philadelphia,PA (zone 6B)...
Indian Free Peach (on Citation), 700 chill hours
Baby Crawford Peach (on Lovell), 800 chill hours
Double Jewel Flowering Peach (on Citation), 300-500 chill hours?
Pixie Cot Miniature Apricot (on Nemaguard), (600 chill hours)
Spice Zee Nectaplum (on Citation), 200-300 chill hours? crap guess this is low chill. Its ashame cause I already planted this one last summer and it grew impressingly from 15" stick in the ground to 6 feet.
I think I saw Philadelphia gets alot of chill hours(over 1400hrs?).
Im guessing for most of these, the winter will satisfy the plants dormancy requirements and a warm early spring will bring the plant out of dormancy and then kill the blooms when the weather gets cold again, esp the low chill one...
Are there any that have a good chance of getting fruit off of?
Are there any interesting peach/plout/hybrids and possibly unusual nectarine/apricot/Zaiger fruit trees that you would recommend for my east coast area?
