Well, instead of trying to find info on Grower's Pride, how about posting the varieties, and perhaps forum members can give you chill hours for the various cultivars you're interested in?

I have looked at a lot of the different names of the trees.I think they make up different names for there can't match the names with anything.These trees are at the local CO-OP Am going to try to get info from them.

RE: Growers Pride or GP

I recommend ordering your trees from a reputable supplier. Even if you get specific info on varieties how do you know trees are labeled correctly?

Investing in trees from a reliable source is well worth some added expense. Growing fruit successfully is hard enough with the right varieties.

RE: Growers Pride or GP

It is strange that a local Co-op would not be a reputable source. Master Gardeners are likely to be involved with a local Co-op and through that particular organization you should be able to get some decent information.
Usually bare root plants a dug during dormancy and sold just about the time that they're coming back to life.
I see you are from a warm zone and your concept of chill hours would have different significance than ours.
