Description

Pretty and productive. Large, hard-shell nuts give way to smaller bittersweet kernels. This attractive tree yields large crops of crunchy almonds in fall, and its lovely pink flowers make it a landscape standout in spring. Grows wherever peaches thrive. Matures to be 15–20′ tall, 10–15′ wide. Ripens in late September. Self-pollinating but should be crossed with a peach or nectarine.

CAUTION! The seed is classified as a bitter almond. The bitter taste comes from glycoside amygdalin, which is the precursor to hydrogen cyanide (prussic acid). Although the seeds contain relatively low amounts of glycoside amygdalin, it is recommended to boil or roast seeds to reduce potential risks since glycoside amygdalin is destroyed by high temperatures.

Stone Fruit Pruning Guide

It is recommended that most stone fruits, apricots, nectarines, peaches and plums, in particular, should be pruned into an Open Center habit also known as a Vase Shape. This, however, is up to the grower as they can be successfully grown with a central leader habit or espalier.

An open-center structure keeps the tree’s canopy open to light, which is necessary for the development of quality fruit. This shape is beneficial in supporting the heavy fruit crops of certain stone-fruit trees since they generally have a natural outward growing habit. The majority of pruning occurs in the winter or early spring while the tree is still dormant.

New Plantings

Young peach trees tend to be dormant, 3 to 6 foot whips with a profusion of side branches coming from the main stem. As soon as the tree is planted cut the main stem back to a height of 30 to 36 inches above ground level. All of the thin, weak side branches should be removed, but if there are three or four strong side branches that are well spaced around the trunk, retain them to form a framework. Side branches should have wide-angled crotches with the trunk and they should be spaced about 6 to 8 inches apart up and down the trunk. After about three years, the scaffold branches will be well established. During this establishing period, any damaged/diseased, water-sprouts, or branches facing into the center of the tree should be removed.

Established Pruning

  • Prune one-third of new growth from the previous growing season.
  • Prune to completely remove dead, damaged, and diseased limbs.
  • Prune to completely remove limbs that are growing inward toward the center of the tree.
  • Prune to completely remove tree suckers and water-sprouts whenever they appear – not just when the tree is dormant.

One of the best-tasting tomatoes. We describe Brandywine's luscious, heirloom flavour as "very rich, loud, and distinctively spicy." The large fruits, often over 1 lb., have a deep pink skin and smooth red flesh. The medium-tall, potato-leaf plant is best staked or caged. Soft skins may crack. Shoulders may remain green when ripe.

Big yellow-white fruits with a mild flavour.

There are a number of heirloom "white" tomatoes, and Great White is the best we have seen. The 12+ oz. fruit is meaty with few seeds, a mild non-acid flavour, and creamy texture. The medium-tall plants are less viny and mature earlier than other "whites." Soft skins may crack; harvest before fully ripe to avoid splitting.

‘Vanessa’ Seedless Grape

$12.00$18.00

Developed by the Horticultural Research Institute of Ontario, Vanessa is a red dessert grape of excellent quality. The vine is moderately vigorous and among the hardiest of seedless grapes. The seed remnant is usually large and soft; when noticeable it is sometimes a cause for limited marketability. Berries are medium in size on medium, well-filled clusters. Storage potential is good. The flavour is mild and fruity, and the berry texture is firm. The fruit quality is among the best of the red seedless types.

According to the University of Minnesota, the characteristic that separates the “Vanessa” from other seedless grape varieties is its crisp texture. Bruce Reisch, a professor in the Department of Horticultural Sciences at Cornell University in New York (USA), who specializes in viticulture, said fruit quality makes it one of the best table grapes among the seedless red grape varieties.

Rich, sweet-tart flavour. This spreading ornamental shrub yields berries packed with pectin, and high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Great for wine, jams, and smoothies. Blueberry-sized berries are sweet and astringent when eaten fresh. Fruit is astringent and may not appeal to everyone’s tastes. White, sweet-scented five-petal blooms appear in spring along with fine-toothed foliage that turns a fiery-red in fall, creating a welcome ornamental addition to your landscape. Pest- and disease-resistant. Cold hardy. Ripens in September. Self-pollinating. Native to North America. Also known as “Chokeberry”.
