Thanks Doreen, coming from you this is a tremendous compliment.
I have Saturn as a branch on one of my seedlings but it is young. Came through a winter that was tough on peach buds last year as a bud though. The good thing about grafting on established trees is that you get a lot of growth right away. My Saturn made about 4 1/2' of new growth this summer and is ready for a good test. Peaches like it here in the summer, its only the winter that gives them a few slight problems.

WOW! Dave Griffin's post is the best thing I've ever read on experimenting with fruit in cold climates. And, I read thousands of research papers and talk to researchers all over the world in my job as a garden writer. In fact, I just finished talking with cherry researchers all over the country, and their experiments don't come close to the practical and extensive approach Griffin takes.
I second the recommendation that this should be written up for Pomona. It's extremely valuable information.
Thank you Dave for sharing your work and documenting it so thoroughly.
Zone 4b-5a, IL-WI border where I'm hoping my Saturn peach makes it through this winter.
