Orchard

    10 responses

Mike Grimes starts with ...
Can anyone suggest what stone fruit are best suited to the Orange area. I am at Sopringside so our temperature in winter is usually about 8-9 deg less than Orange as we at 1800M. We get the full 4 seasons and heavy snow on an average of 6 days in winter. Rich soil and plenty of water. I have about1.5 acres spare that I want to dedicate to this orchard.

Go around and check what neighbours grow. Other than that, may I suggest the Himalayan pineapple or the Mt Evrest mango.

Mike have you thought about talking to the horticulture division of the NSW dept of Primary Industry? (See above) This is the kind of thing that they should be able to help with. Some of their information is very good and while it is directed towards commercial growing their advice would apply to all growers.

hy·per·bol·ic/ˌhīpərˈbälik/Adjective: 1.Of or relating to a hyperbola.
2.(of a function, e.g., a cosine) Having the same relation to a rectangular hyperbola as the unqualified function does to a circle.

That makes sense.

Still need to explain why you're 900 metres out in altitude. "hyperbole" wild exaggeration, overstated, fanciful.

I have found a device known as Hornet determines the salinity & temperature of the soil. So you can easily check temperature & water capacity required for Orchard.
