Most of the selections on this list are of varieties that I have used for many years. there are some new ones in the last few years. I did replace Blush with Sweet Cream because they are similar in taste and Sweet Cream is a cleaner crack-free fruit. All in all, I try to have a nice mix of colors, sizes and textures on my list. I seek the total experience with my selections. Of course, there are many more that can be great choices for the market but on my list are the ones that I have had success with for many years. Sometimes I may grow Old German or German Head. Except for a few additions every few years, I have not deviated from this list since 2013. I wish you JOY!
