Subject: [NAFEX] trying to buy pixie crunch and sundance apples + asian
From Purdue's information, it appears that pixie crunch and sundance
are exclusively licensed to Rocky Meadow, now aka a Gardens Alive
company. So it does show up in some of the Gardens Alive company
catalogs, such as Henry Fields. But I'm having trouble finding any
evidence that it is actually orderable anywhere. If anyone can enlighten
me, I'll be grateful.
P.S.: I'm also looking for Japanese pear suggestions. I have Shinko and
Shinseiki and have been very pleased with the fruit. As have been all
the people to whom I gave samples. :-) I also have a Korean Giant/Don
Bae/Olympic which has yet to fruit. The question is, if I were to put in
a couple more asian pears, should I choose another Shinko and Shinseiki,
or are there others I should consider?
* Heavy clay soil. I do make small hills to help with the heavy end of
* Zone 5b.
* I have had serious fireblight. Only once, but it was really nasty on
the European pears.
