Moonglow and orient drop time


New Member
When do your moonglow and orients drop off the tree in correlation to your kieffer pears. I am in 6a 5b depending on which map I look at I'm just wondering if they will hold into October at all.
Moonglow about 2 weeks before Kieffer - maybe a little earlier some years. Both drop over an extended time period.

Don't have Orient (yet). your moonglo pears drop leaves early too? My 1st year trees are leaf-less now but the keiffer and apples I have all still have leaves on?
I walked out and looked at the one in my yard and it looks about the same as the Kieffer. Both still have about 1/3 of their leaves. Some apples still have many green leaves and others have completely shed.
