I believe that researchers in Israel were some of the first to look at peach meadows. I remember a story in "The Grower" supplement of "The Packer" newspaper that probably ran in the mid-1970s. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Zone 4b)

And one of the reasons they MAY have been able to propagate by cuttings is these locations mentioned do NOT
have devastating winters that kill delicate rooted cuttings.
Of course, every method of difficult propagation succeeds - in the journals. It makes good reading, but don't
confuse this with reality.
