Wanted: robust varieties for zip 02748 coastal Massachusetts
Posted: Fri Feb 22, 2013 3:52 pm
If you live in USA, New England, please let me know what varieties will do well at zip code 02748, coastal Massachusetts. Cedar apple rust is prevalent. Rootstock recommendations needed also. Very good sandy loam and full sun at the site. I cannot find much information on best varieties to grow, and the reasons they are the best! Where I am now in Seattle, we have many resources and thoughtful lists from active groups (http://www.HomeOrchardSociety.com and http://www.SeattleTreeFruitSociety.com ). Send me links! Tell me why it will do well! I also want to know what other fruit to plant that will thrive! Peaches?, Filberts?, Pears?, Plums? Thank you all, John.
