Hi All , It has come to my attention that there have been some recent (In the last decade) introductions of new fruit-bearing varieties which are not only very winter-hardy ( on the right rootstock) but are of an impressive quality not previously seen before . Has anyone here tried any of these . I am most interested in apples . The University of Minnesota has a recent introduction called Zestar! What I'm wondering is if it is as good as described , or is it hype ? Any other Northern orchard-keepers here ??? What is working for you ? Do you have any varieties you would recommend from experience ? Let's hear from you Northern fruit growers !
Thanks ! ---Burl---
