We are very excited about a new planting we are putting in. We will be adding some more pluots, plums and apriums. Pluots are plum apricot cross developed by Floyd Zaiger that are 60-70% plum and 30-40% apricot. We are planting Flavor Grendade, Dapple Dandy, Flavor King, Flavor Queen and Flavor Supreme. We are also going to be planting a new Aprium. Apriums are 60-70% apricot and 30-40% plum. Both pluots and apriums are very sweet and deliscious. We would expect fruit from these in 2014, our first pluot planting should be producing well next year.
Our new raspberry plantings from this spring are doing well which means we should have a good supply of raspberries for next spring.
In our peach orchard we are budding over some of the varieties we have trialed that are not doing well in our area (either they do not taste good enough or the trees don't grow well). We have also added some new varieties. We hope to have a good crop of peaches for sale next year. We hope your summer has been enjoyable.
