I've had a shipova for 15 years. Its an interesting flavor, but the fruit is small so it takes some work to enjoy. Pruning to keep it at a height that can be picked is an ongoing challenge, it wants to run for the sky. Fun to have, not a go-to.
The best sweet-tart flavor, puts on a ton of medium sized freestone fruits, does not crack like many nectarines. The fruit hang longer than the large varieties of peaches and nectarines, possibly because they tend to be medium-sized but they are actually the perfect size for eating. I originally planted seven varieties of peaches and nectarines, I will be, after 6 years, replacing all of the others with Red Gold nectarines.
I have one 7-years old Lapins cherry tree in Indiana, it blooms very well every spring, but never produces any cherry.
I bought the tree in 2018. It’s doing great in zone 5. I bought a dapple dandy too at the same time and in 2020 it suddenly dried up and died in summer. The flavor grenade has plenty flowers and is very showy in spring. I have had tree covered in flowers from 2021. Last year I had couple of fruits but they had plum curculio and squirrels took one. This year there were lots of fruits early on but most dropped because of plum curculio I think. I bagged 10 or so with organza bags at the right time and they are the only ones which ripened out of 200 or so flowers. I ate 1 in mid August and it was ok felt a bit raw. I ate few in early Sep and they were good and crunchy and sweet. I ate my last one on Sep 20. It was almost red all around with blushes of green and came off with a gentle tug. That was the most spectacular fruit I have ever eaten. So sweet and juicy and crunchy!
This plant has been doing great in western Washington. I got a crop the first year in the ground then the following year got a large crop.
I have had the tree planted for two growing seasons. This year I got 3 figs that tasted amazing! Highly recommend if you like figs
I'm excited to see this tree progress .
This homely little apple hides a flavor explosion beneath its russetted skin. It's disease resistant, vigorous, and quick-growing too, has a long bloom period for pollinization, and the fruit keeps quite well after harvest. I'm told it makes wonderful cider. My little tree was rather pitiful-looking when I put it into the ground and I had low expectations for it, but by the next year it had branched out beautifully and even produced a few apples. Crops are larger every other year. I wouldn't be without it - it's my best favorite.
We've had our oldest tree now 4 years and it produced well this year for the 1st time. Unlike our other Asian pear this one seems to be slightly more columnar in shape. The fruit have a terrific taste, nicely sweet and firm, and the size is larger than any you'll find in stores; ours averaged 1.5 lbs. I'm glad I have three, two came a few years later. Thinning fruit would be wise, especially on younger trees and fruit that develops on branch tip. Imagine the density of a standard Asian pear but the size of a grapefruit.
I appreciate having a peach that ripens late in the season after my other peach trees have already given all of their fruit. The tree I recieved was a strong one, established itself well while the other two (different type) I received in the same shipment didn't and died within a year.
This spring I bought a 6" grafted meader. For the first weeks it seemed to grow beautifully. It put out leaves. To my surprise, it also put out four flowers on five of its buds. The flowers quickly fell off and the seedling seemed to be dying. The tree did not grow any small branch and is sticking out of the ground as was 6" and after a few months it remained the same. No growth at all. Probably bad grafting material. I wasted a whole year and I'm sad to admit that I'm not young either.
Very vigorous tree, produced a bumper crop in the second year. A note about Ellisons. Right off the tree, they are amazing, really the best apple I've tasted. Shortly after picking, they develop an aniseed taste that becomes medicine-like after about 3 days, so they do not store well.
I tried a Kosui pear today and this website came up when I tried to find out more about the fruit. If I had space for a tree at my home, I would plant one! Fruit is beautifully round and almost like a apple shape, easy to core and seeds are centralized. Its almost like a cross between a pear and an apple but nicely sweet vs tart. Seems like it would store well over the fall / winter. Grower says it has vanilla and butterscotch tones and I can concur this is true.
Planted in 2018 and the tree is now mature and in full production. Very well crosspollinates with "Stanley" and "Seneca" and sets an abundant crop. Ripens late, in south PA zone 7A first truly ripe fruits start coming on the second week of September. Plums are sweet&sour with a mild flavor, so wasps and hornets are little interested. Fruits are freestone, firm, moderately juicy, so perfect for canning and drying. Beautiful shape of fruits and yellow to orange color with little vax boom makes them unique (see photos uploaded). The tree shows strong disease resistance: leaves are exceptionally healthy, deep green and there are no signs of Black Knot year-after-year. However, fruits are moderately susceptible to Brown Rot (worth to try an organic-grade treatment/spray).
Planted in 2018 and the tree is now mature and in full production. Very well crosspollinate with "Seneca" and "Schoolhouse" and sets an abundant crop. Ripens late, in south PA zone 7A first truly ripe fruits starts coming on the second week of September. Plums are sweet and flavorful, so wasps and hornets try to get them part too... Fruits are completely freestone, moderately juicy, so perfect for canning and drying. Beautiful shape of fruits and deep blue color with vax boom, which makes the color look light blue (see photos uploaded). The tree shows significant disease resistance: leaves are healthier than "Seneca's" and fruits are less attacked by Brown Rot (just few). There is little susceptibility to Black Knot, but it is completely absent on some years, so resistance to this disease is strong.
This is a great peach tree. It grew quickly and produced fruit after two years. The fruit was excellent too.
