PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike one limb of a percentage of the trees with a mix of the above pollinators - 50% should work.

 

2 Variety 4 Row Combination Planting:  Blackred XII (0C498) can be planted combination with September Yummy®.

 

Other Combination Plantings:  The numerous lists above suggest a large number of combination plantings that would be unidirectional, so pollinators for the unverified variety would have to be provided, but it should be easy to get excellent results.

 

Again, it would be cheap insurance to spike every 4th tree in the middle two rows of any 4 row planting with an appropriate pollinator.

TREE DESCRIPTION Upright, good vigor, some juvenile thorns.
COLD STORAGE DATA  
OVERALL Excellent in size and production commercially.  However, this variety has suffered from extreme heat waves, so is only marginal in those conditions.  The flavor and firmness are fine, but we had internal heat damage to about 5% during 2013.  A big money maker, but not quite a Plumtastic in quality due to the heat problems.  0C621 and 0C768 both handle the heat much better, but are not as large.

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 or a side scaffold of the commercial variety with one of the confirmed pollinators.  For difficult setting varieties, the recommended method would be to spike each tree once with a confirmed pollinator throughout the commercial orchard.  The pollinators should be alternated.  For easy to set varieties, spiking about one tree in five has shown to be effective.  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 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 benefit the pollination at least one way, and preferably each way.  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.
