Low Chill Stone fruits
« on: January 15, 2019, 06:55:35 PM »
I posted in the temperate sale section with no response.  Just posting it here in case people are interested but missed it.  Im planning to prune my trees this weekend.

Have all kinds of low chill peach, nectarine, plum, apricots, cherry, and interspecifics. 

Send me a message before the weekend if you want scions. 

5$ per scion.

Do you have UF Best?

I'm interested in apricots as well but I'm not sure if there is a low chill apricot that would fruit in the same areas as Florida Prince Peach.

These don't come true to seed.  They are all pollinating each other and all the trees are on special rootstocks.

Anyway, sale is done.  I trimmed the trees yesterday and am looking forward to some fruit soon.

Which rootstocks are they on? I have ordered two Florida Prince peaches bareroot on Nemaguard which is a better rootstock for dry weather. Our water is saly and soil is Alkaline.

I read that peaches hate salt and are sensitive to it, so I'm currently looking for a source of the Hansen 536 rootstock which is known to be more salt tolerant and is also more tolerant of alkaline soils.

I think most of my peach and nectarines are on citation.  Which seems to work fine here.

Yep, every rootstock is site dependent. Citation works good in many places in CA and in some places around Phoenix (yards that have flood irrigation in particular) but every tree on Citation in my yard has died. Neemagaurd has not fared much better. But trees on Myro and Marianna do great in my yard.

Theres probably better rootstocks for my location.  Citation is probably better for commercial peach areas like central valley of CA that have heavy clay soil and flood irrigation.  But I take what I can get from the nursery selling the trees.  Citation is supposed to like wet soil.  But my soil is really well draining sand/DG.  And its still working ok.  I do regular watering in summer and mulch heavily so that helps.  I have trees on other rootstocks too and they are all performing well.  The stone fruit trees are very vigorous here.

Is myrobalan and Myro the same thing? If so I think myrobalan is grown from seed which be very exciting for me.
Is Myro compatable with Peachs? or just plums?

Yep. Myro=myrobalan. I have seen peach trees grafted onto Myro. Buy my best peach trees and peach interspecifics (like Bella Gold Peacotum) are on Lovell Peach rootstock. That is anoth combo that does well in my yard.

Brad, sorry for hijacking your post.

OMG Brad yes we are sorry lol.

I'll order some Lovell seeds and experiment with them then. It has proven to be almost impossible to get hold of Hansen rootstock. RSI growers in Arizona ( https://rsigrowers.com/index.html) claim that Hansen rootstock is really tolerant of salt and high calcium carbonate (relative to other peach rootstocks) and you can except higher yields using that rootstock in Arizona.

Brad,
We are sorry again.
