A 2011 WSU patent and description of a complex acid structure (baba) that when applied to fruit tree flowers prior to emerging will protect the developing fruit. I would like to see it tested in our area, for example protecting freezes on apricots that are not sheltered from cold rain events at the HOS gardens in Canby Oregon.

That could be interesting. I know it's a big deal with kiwis also.
