Neutral Farmerdill On Nov 25, 2006, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

To quote the United States Department of Agriculture, "Byrongold meets or exceeds all current expectations for tree vigor, productivity, precocity, and resistance to the bacterial and fungal diseases that are common in the Southeastern United States." Byrongold's fruit is a winner, too! Large , over 2 inches in diameter, and round, it's bright yellow on the outside with a golden-yellow flesh that's deliciously crispy. Needs a pollinator. Ripens late June to early July. Zone 8.
