I’m looking for information and guidance about planting fruit trees near Kennicott.

Asked January 18, 2020, 11:49 PM EST

Which varieties would be best suited for this area? I’m new to Alaska. I lived near Pahoa, Hawaii for 12 years where I grew a lot of tropical gardens and fruit trees. I would like to see if its possible to cultivate fruit trees near Kennicott. As far as I know fruit bearing trees have not been cultivated in this area. Any guidance is appreciated, especially specific species to try. My main focus would be prolific producers vs obscure and novelty varieties. Apples, Plums, cherries and any other types of fruit that have been successfully grown in Alaska. Thank You, Amor

Search for the Alaska Fruit Growers Association. Lots of their members are into pushing the limit with AK fruit trees.
