Choke cherries doing fine. Without irrigation.
And before you think, Oh, a Weed, think again. Okanagan Spirits can’t make their Kirsch Virgiana until someone delivers 2.5 tons of these things to their distillery. The result goes for 2x the price of the sour cherry kirsch, and lifts a cheese fondue to a new level. So, really, it’s not as hot as we might think. Even at 45 Celsius. All you orchardists out there, going broke growing Royal Galas, hellooooooo. HellOOOOOOOoooo! (Everyone join in.)
