Event Title: Tree Fruit for Coastal North Carolina
Description: Learn about a wide range of tree fruits for coastal North Carolina, from apples to Persimmons, including variety selection, planting and fertilizing, insect and disease management, and summer and winter pruning techniques. Touch on less common and less adapted tree fruits as well, including more hardy citrus choices, and learn both the risks associated with choosing to grow those trees in a climate outside their comfort range and how to give them the best chance of survival.

This class will be taught by Mike Parker, Associate Professor in the Department of Horticulture Science at NC State University. Mike has both Extension and research responsibilities for tree fruit. His research program includes apple rootstocks, peaches and alternative tree fruit crops, primarily applied in nature. Research interests are in the area of cultural management strategies, rootstock performance in the southeast, peach thinning, planting systems and orchard floor management.
