    Are they still trying to grow trees that need chill time in east Texas? I've seen that debacle before. Plums and pears will work but apples and peaches?

    The 2" are putting on a small amount of fruit (pears and peaches) but the 1/2" ones are no where close
    The mulch will be kept below the graft.

    Yep. Right north of me is a huge peach growing area several large farms. We have special varieties that will do well with only 400 or less chill hrs. This past winter was warm but usually we have a cool winter...this isnt florida!!
