Planting Chambourcin
8 Jun 2004 by JR
Ron Taylor, Hong Kong: A friend of mine is thinking about planting (for fun rather than commercially) some Chambourcin on his farm in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. I've done some research on the internet but obtained very conflicting information. e.g. resistant to fungal disease, not resistant; early ripening, late ripening; moderately vigorous, very vigorous etc etc. I believe it may be a French American hybrid, aka Joannes-Seyve 26-205 based on a Seibel hybrid?...
