Richard Wagner asked: "Are there any stone fruits with any resistance to the 
plum curculio?"

    Someone in our group once mentioned that Curculios do not infect Beach 
Plum.  So I bought a bunch of them and two survive Minnesota Winters.  So 
far, no curculio problems but I still wonder if they actually are resistant 
or if the bugs just haven't found them yet.
