Grape Hardiness Update for Mid-December - Kelowna and Similkameen Supplement

Summerland Research and Development Centre is pleased to announce that 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-December.  The sampled hardiness levels were determined as average lethal temperature exotherms (LTE) measured on buds of several varieties by region collected on December 13th and 14th in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valley.
