Fruit & Berries

A few years back the day before our wedding anniversary we planted a mini orchard consisting of 16 different fruit trees.

We have Apples:

  • Braeburn
  • Cortland
  • Empire
  • Fuji
  • Gala
  • Macoun
  • Empire

We have Pears:

  • 3 on 1 Asian Pear
  • Bartlett
  • Beurre Bosc
  • Red Anjou

We have Peaches:

  • Finger Lakes Super Hardy
  • Reliance

We have Apricots:

  • Dwarf Moongold
  • Dwarf Sungold

And one Nectacrest Nectarine tree.

It was about that time we also set up a small blueberry and strawberry patch. Unfortunately time and weeds were against us and won. We lost all our strawberries and had to get a whole new batch last year. This time, I built one raised bed and am working on completing a second. They are 4 feet wide by 32 feet long and are about 2 feet tall. The varieties we are growing and will be transplanting to the new raised beds are:

  • Allstar
  • Eversweet™
  • Honeoye
  • Jewel
  • Ozark Beauty
  • Sparkle
  • Tristar
  • Wonderful Pineberry™

As for the blueberries they are alright. All be it bit smaller than i’d like as they are around 3 years old now. We have 6 varieties consisting of:

  • Atlantic
  • Bluecrop
  • Blueray
  • Herbert
  • Ivanhoe
  • Jersey

Last year we also picked up some raspberry plants and plan on building a trellis near the blueberry and strawberry patch. We went with 3 varieties:

  • Double Gold
  • Encore Red
  • Prelude Red
