Ordered my fruit trees today -- any comments on these varieties?

I ordered from Trees of Antiquity and Raintree:

  • Early Pink Lady apple
  • Rubinette apple
  • Forelle pear
  • Harrow Delight pear
  • Chinese sweet pit apricot (AKA Chinese Mormon)

Any comments on these, particularly in colder zones?

I have had a longstanding love affair with Forelle, which are getting really hard to find in the markets now; I don't care if you tell me they're hard to grow, I'm going to do it anyway :0p

I did hold off on getting an Avalon Pride peach and Black Tartarian cherry because I didn't want my credit card to burst into flames, what with the $$$ shipping I had to cough up. I'll probably be able to find the cherry locally, so if I see one I may pick it up. There's always next year for the peach, I already have two and am only interested in this one because it's resistant to the darn peach leaf curl.

ETA: I wanted to order from Grandpa's Orchard, I'm a little leery of Raintree, but G.O. didn't have much of what I wanted this year; on my list they only had the apricot.
