In the garden: Choosing a fruit tree

Ask yourself a lot of questions before choosing a fruit tree to plant. For example, do you like rose petals with rose petals? Is Apple Cake Your Favorite? Or do you prefer figs to peel off the skin and pick up the juice? Do you prefer a traveler like Blackberry or Blueberry that you can sew in your yard to create a windshield for your garden?

The variety of fruits to choose from is apple, apricot, blackberry, blueberry, citrus, fig, peach, pear, persimmon and plum, and many more.

Depending on where you are, it is important to note that the difference is that it is self-defeating (and it is not necessary to grow pollen or self-produce). Next, you need to choose a fruit that meets the cold hours of Texas Hill Country.

Cold hours

Temperatures range from 32 degrees Fahrenheit to 45 degrees Fahrenheit (Frozen Hours) when it comes to breaking down sleep and promoting normal flowering and flowering. There are exceptions and the years vary, but in a typical year – if there is such a thing – most fruit trees experience around 600-800 hours of frost in our area.

Fruit trees have a cold requirement to produce the best yield for a particular fruit. Not all fruits have the same requirements for cold weather. Some are less than two to 400 hours; Others can last up to 1,000 hours.

When choosing your fruit trees or cane fruits (blackberries, blueberries), be aware that if they have low cooling time requirements, they will bloom too early and may freeze late. If the requirements are too high, they may not be as good as we normally would. The best advice for Texas Hill Land (as described above) is to stay within your chosen hours.

These cooling hours vary depending on the type of fruit you choose.

  • Apples – 200-600
  • Apricot – 300-1000
  • Blackberry – 300-1,000
  • citrus (satsuma) – 300-400
  • Figs – 150 (but these are hardwoods that should be gambled on if they are planted or protected near the structure)
  • Peach – 400-1,000
  • Pearl – 200-800
  • persimmon – 200-400
  • Plum – 250-600

Peach trees

Take pich trees, for example. How do we choose one of the many in the world? Here are some pointers.

By choosing from both high and low desirable peach trees, we can play the cool clock requirements for the number of hours that cool down and perhaps a little gambling.

Then select “Stick” or “Free” peaches. These words refer to the relationship between the peach seed (stone) and the peach fruit. When the meat sticks to the stone, it is considered as sticky peach. Conversely, when the meat is pulled freely from the stone, it is called Friston or Free. It’s just a matter of personal choice. Until next time. Put your souls and feet in your garden!
