BLOSSOM DENSITY Heavy bloom.
FLOWER TYPE Medium white flower, orange yellow anthers.
POLLEN PRODUCTION Good, attracts bees, great pollinator for mid to late season.
PLANTING SUGGESTIONS We are not suggesting any planting due to the cracking issue.  However, it could be used as a pollinator for any of the varieties in the lower chart.
TREE DESCRIPTION Upright and spreading, good vigor, minor juvenile thorns.
COLD STORAGE DATA   
OVERALL NOT RECOMMENDED:  Must wait to see if cracking can be controlled - perhaps other rootstocks.  Great production, GIANT size, excellent fruit qualities in all areas for the last 4 years except severe cracking observed in 2009 but very little in 2012.  It has nice pollen to attract bees. 

POLLINATOR RATINGS

0-1:  No conclusive value

2-3:  Can Be Used

4-6:  Good Pollinator

7-9:  Outstanding Pollinator

10+:  Double Barrel

 

NOTES:

Spiking a pollinator means to graft a central limb of the commercial variety with one of the confirmed pollinators.  The recommended method would be to spike each tree once, but alternate more than one confirmed pollinator throughout the commercial orchard.  Some growers prefer to interplant the pollinator in the same row between two trees of the preferred variety and grow them in a flagpole or or very upright V-style, often pulling and tying a limb toward the center of each adjoining tree.

Combination plantings are made of 2 or 3 varieties that usually benefit each other for pollination.  Alternating 4 rows of each is most common, alternating 2 rows of each gives better pollination, but does not harvest as efficiently.  Also, it is usually beneficial to insert pollinators along the center 2 rows of a 4 row planting.
