A Hard Winter


If you are in the business of peach trees, you know the unseasonably warm weather this winter isn’t good. Most trees require about 840 to 1,000 hours of below 45 degrees. Most growers are going to be lucky to get 300 hours or nearly a third of want they needed. For each hour chilled sixty minutes are subtracted from time spent at or above 70 degrees.
