I've got room for 2 small trees - don't want any more peaches or apricots. Has anyone actually tasted either of these fruits and would you put it ahead of say a pluot? I've read everything from "they are horrible, don't bother except for the birds" and the waxing-eloquent catalog descriptions that I am less inclined to believe. What say you, collected permie wisdom?
I had a spot in front of my porch with room for only 2 small trees. I went with Medlars. This was just last spring, so I don't know what they taste like. Attractive little trees though. Seem very healthy.
We have lots of mountain ash that are wild in my area, but I am not familiar with the hybrids, so I don't have much information to share on your original topic.
Have you heard that apples can be grafted onto mountain ash root stock? I have not tried this with local varieties yet, but I heard that they do that it Europe.
