Dave Wilson Nursery Fruit and Nut Harvest Dates.
A great reference tool to be used in planning successive harvest for home orchards. With the exception of European pears and some apples which are ripened off the tree, harvest periods on this chart are approximate tree-ripe harvest periods for Hickman ( near Modesto), California. Actual harvest dates very from year to year and climate to climate. For reference, Hickman, California is in Sunset Western Garden Book Zone 9, and USDA Plant hardiness zone 9. Normal winter chilling in the Hickman area is about 1,000 hours, adequate for practically all deciduous fruit. Summers are long and hot. The last significant frost usually occurs in mid to late February, and most varieties of peach, nectarine, plum and apricot are in peak bloom by early March.

Very useful guide, however I live in North Carolina, not California. It is simple enough to convert to our geographic area. Love being in know of Nature\'s needs to know when ripe. My husband and I chuckle in our experimentations with previous harvest to determine. Much, much easier with this guide. Many thanks

I was disappointed that the several varieties of citrus fruit like oranges and grapefruit were not listed.
