North American Pomona 14(2): 73 (April 1981)

A PEACH THAT SURVIVED 41° BELOW ZERO
Percy H. Wright Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

I received seed of the wild Manchurian peach about five years ago and grew several nice seedlings. They all froze to the ground during the winter of 1978-79 with the exception of two which showed no damage, even after 41° below zero. This year the trees have fruit buds and I am hopeful of seeing some fruit in August, though I don't expect the fruit to be large or flavorsome.
