Bud Hardiness Nov 15 & 16 - Kelowna & Similkameen

November, 2023

Bud hardiness testing of varieties from Kelowna and the Similkameen Valley has been added for the 2023-24 winter season.  This supplement should typically be bi-weekly on alternate weeks to the primary bud hardiness testing.

Attached are the supplement winter grape bud hardiness results for mid November.  The sampled hardiness levels were determined as average lethal temperature exotherms (LTE) measured on buds of several varieties by region collected on November 15th and 16th in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valley.
