  • Col de Dame noir and winter protection

    This is my CdDN and it has fruit on it that show no sigh of dropping. The fruits are robust and evenly green. Will they ripen in spring?

    Is the tree fully dormant? It looks like it might be in a greenhouse under conditions that will keep it non-dormant. If the tree can be kept in a semi-dormant state then when it comes back to life in the spring they might ripen but I doubt if they would be flavorful. Plus they would likely affect your 2016 main crop. I would remove them.

      Thanks Rewton
      Its in a none heated porch, covered with a European horticultural grade bubble plastic. It is slow to heat up and slow to cool down. My plan is to keep the space at 40 because I have other more tender plants in there.
      Will this relatively high minimum temperature prevent full dormancy. They experienced many cool nights before being put in there with at least 3 or 4 frosts and the leafs fell off naturally
