    Is there any strain of Brown Turkeys that is worth growing...in particular B.Violetta, Valliery or Laradek.

      I've been growing B.Violetta. It's pretty vigorous, but unfortunately it's not even in my top 50.

        "Brown Turkey" is not a single cultivar. Rather it's a collection of cultivars that have the words "brown turkey" in their names. (e.g. California Brown Turkey, English Brown Turkey, etc.). Some of those cultivars have multiple known strains. (A subdivision within a cultivar). I like English Brown Turkey. There are multiple strains of it.

          I used to have a BT that originated from Monrovia Nurseries which was quite good.

            CA BT is superb when caprified. I do not know how it tastes outside the wasp belt

              If you're referring to English Brown Turkey, that's an interest of mine too. I recently had a thread on it, but it seems LaRadeks is a favorite of those who have it. I'm sure you know, but I don't think any of the main crop on any variety will ripen for you in the PNW. Brebas might survive unprotected though, not sure how cold you get but given the others that do well for you I wouldn't be surprised.

                  I have one called Verns Brown Turkey that is pretty good. Haven't tried to many other BT though.

                    Just wondering So if you graft Sweetheart Cherry on the other kind of Cherry , do you not get a Sweetheart Cherry ?
