With summer rolling on, we can begin to see standouts among our newly grafted fruit trees.
We've been working in the nursery in the morning hours, unwrapping graft unions which may girdle the trees and taking stock of varieties that look the most vigorous.
Among the apples, Limbertwig varieties appear to be doing the best, in general. With some other standouts, such as Enterprise and various crabs.
As for pears, Nova appears the most vigorous so far.
Mulberries are all doing very well (I didn't get any photos of them though). As well as the pawpaws, jujubes and persimmons.
