Sounds like our peach trees may get enough chilling to produce again.

You are correct, IHOG. I believe they said that last December was "one of the coldest on record". That bodes well with the "chill hours" of many fruit trees.

Unfortunately, papaya is one of the "trees" that doesn't do well in cold. We lost dozens of fruit, but the plants themselves probably survived.

Oh well, they grow fast, so we'll take our chances again this year. Supposedly fruit that overwinters doesn't taste good anyway, so maybe losing them was for the best.
