help with chill hours! (for growing fruit trees)
I found a map that lists chill hours for FL.
It's broken up into different regions based on what area of FL it is (central, southern, or northern) and tells how many chill hours each area of FL gets.
I'm trying to figure out where on the map Ocala would be, and essentially how many chill hours (roughly) Ocala gets annually.
The map is from a site called just fruits and exotics, which
specializes in selling fruit trees specifically for FL and other states with low chill hours.
Here's what the map says....
Pan Handle (tallahassee, pensacola, etc.) 660-700 chill hours
Northeastern part of FL (Jacksonville and Gainsville area) 420-540
The other areas are 420-540 chill hours (I don't know what cities are in this area, that's what I'm trying to figure out) and 310-420 (further south, again I don't know what cities).
The rest of it is southern FL and is 200 chill hours or less.
Here is the link of where the chill hour map is listed you'll have to copy and paste it manually into browser, as I don't know how to get to display link where you click on it.
Just scroll down and you'll see the chill hour map.
