|Sweet Treat Pluerry Buds. 2.11.16|
Big fat buds. Sweet treat pluerry, Hollywood plum, Methley Asian plum, unknown variety of Asian plum.
Fuzzy buds but not showing petal color. Peaches, Charlotte, Q18/Salish. Leaf buds of Saijo and Nikita's Gift persimmons.
We are not as far ahead as I had worried. Last year, full bloom for plums was March 7th. We might be 2 or 3 weeks early this year.
This will be a good year to see if the Asian/American hybrid plums bloom later than the all-Asian plum varieties.
Euro plums, cherries, pawpaws, apples, most pears, no or minimal bud swell so far.
