dwn special order for n/s california gw forum members

Since several of us in California are having difficulties purchasing some of the commercial and less commonly available varieties of stone fruits and pomes by DWN, tmunson and I are going to put together a group purchase for those in California who are near us, as well as for any GW Fruits & Orchards forum members.

We have to stick to residents of California, due to quarantine restrictions going across state lines. We are going to try to start in groups of 5 varieties, with a minimum order of 10 trees per variety for a sub total of 50 trees. If we get 50 trees spoken for, we'll offer another 5 varieties of 10 trees each. If we can get to a total of 150 trees ordered, we can then open the special order up to additional single trees (for those who want "one of everything").

We'll be ordering them on a dwarfing rootstock (Citation for prunus, and New Root 1 for cherries)which should do well across the board for those in N. & S. California. Here are the first 5 choices we're going to order. If any of our California forum members are interested in participating, and would like to add any of the below varieties to their orchard, you can email me at hoosierquilt@aol.com to be added to the list:

1. Honey Royale nectarine
2. Honey Blaze nectarine
3. Tasty Rich aprium
4. Sandra Rose cherry
5. Sweet Treat pluerry

Thanks, Brady :-) We've adjusted the line up a wee bit, due to the pleurry being available to folks via the SOFT program. Here's our new line up, thanks to some help from fruitnut. These are tentative until we confirm availablility:

1. Honey Blaze nectarine
2. Honey Royale nectarine
3. Flavor Treat pluot
4. Tasty Rich aprium
5. Flavorella plumcot
6. Sandra Rose cherry

All will be on semi-dwarfing rootstocks.

It's my latest maturing stone fruit. Big, beautiful, meaty, and very sweet. But too late for WI.
