Rootstocks for Kentucky Fruit Trees
3/28/2011 (major revision)

 UK Authors: John Strang, Dwight Wolfe, Sh
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: farm crops, fruits and nuts

Most fruit trees that can be grown in Kentucky do not come true from seed. For example, a tree grown from a Golden Delicious apple seed will produce an apple tree, but the fruit will have different characteristics than Golden Delicious in color, taste, and shape. This is why fruit trees are reproduced by asexual propagation, such as budding and grafting.

Peach Cultivar Performance
6/14/2010 (major revision)

 UK Authors: John Strang, Dwight Wolfe
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: farm crops, fruits and nuts

The commercial success of a peach orchard depends largely on selecting cultivars that will perform reliably and meet market needs. Although many fruit and tree characteristics are presented in this report, the final cultivar selection should be determined by the grower. A grower may be influenced by soil type, local climate, or marketing methods and prefer a cultivar that is not a general favorite. Growers should have test plots of two to four trees of new cultivars to help them judge the performance in their orchard.

 Tags: farm crops, fruits and nuts

Kentucky has a long record of good grape production. As a home fruit crop or commercial crop, grapes have many benefits. Grapevines are relatively inexpensive and easy to propagate. They reach full bearing potential in four years and bear annually. The many varieties of grapes can be consumed fresh or used to make grape juice, jams, jellies, and wine. Grapes are also easy to manage. Vines are trained on trellises or arbors and easily can be sprayed using small equipment for control of insects and diseases.
