    peaches are a bit sketchy up here. I have one tree that puts out pretty good. the other two don't do so well. Same with pears. My neighbor has a tree that puts out great. my two are duds. Apple trees everywhere though and cherries do well.

    they list them on there web site but haven't had them in stock for the last 3 years. Same with the 45acp uppers they list. I would have to guess they were troublesome and just quit making them.
