First pluots in Wisconsin?

Probably not, but the 4 in 1 pluot from Raintree decided to hold 5 or 6 Geo Pride pluots. What is funny is that this tree had very little in the way of roots. I even repotted it one time into a larger container (just as it was waking up).

Everything looks nice and clean, Frank, good job. You deserve some success after everything you've gone through to get them to this point.

I'll be thinking about you as I eat tasteless California fruit (well, I'll probably not bother too much, at least I have strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, currents, gooseberries coming on, and melon transplants ready to go in the ground).

Frank:

Very nice fruit!!! It all looks great. Just one thing, those don't look like Geo Pride. I could be wrong but Geo Pride isn't elongated like yours. Looks a bit more like Flavor Grenade.

I guess when they ripen, then I'll be able to verify with you what they are. Here is the tag on the branch...Dave Wilson better not of messed up my tree! :) :) It looks like they use some sort of color identification on the branches (Geo is green/Flavor is yellow)...?

Dennis-
Thanks a lot. A lot of clean fruit, but a lot of ugly fruit. I filled almost a 5 gallon bucket up with PC infested apples. 2 sprays of Permethrin was a savior for the 'cots and plums, but the apples got neglected and it was too late. Nothing wrong with berries. I can't believe the kids and I haven't turned red from the strawberries! You'll have a bumper crop next year and i'll probably have a yard of dead trees from -50F temps!

You think permethrin more effective than triazicide?

RE: First pluots in Wisconsin?

Can't say for sure, but looking at how bad my apples got hit and how clean the sprayed apricots and plums look, it must have been effective, especially with only 2 sprays (about 10-12 days apart).
