It will grow great in a pot or in the ground, and ripens mid-season. Needs 700 chill hours. Self fruitful.

Ask a Question
  • Can this bare fruit still in Southern Arizona winters or does Southern Arizona winters provide enough chill hours for this fruit tree to bare fruit?

    Arctic Babe requires 700+ chill hours. Anywhere south of Prescott, AZ is probably too warm through the winter, but your mileage may vary and climates are prone to change over time.

  • How leaf curl treated?

    Leaf curl is treated with a copper fungicide, applied just before bud break.

  • Can this plane can grown in OR?

    Yes if treated for peach leaf curl

It shipped to me in a timely manner and got to me in good shape. I put it in a nice pot for now and it’s starting to bud.

Looks very healthy. Planted it’s already sprouting. Hopefully we have a great summer


So far, so good, asked me again in one year. Because this was a bear root plant, I will not know how good the product is until after it produces fruit next year. The service was good. It arrived two days before arrival day.
And the customer service was excellent. I had to email them a question about putting my bare root tree in a container, and they answered me with a very competent answer. So far I love this company.
