PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike one limb of a percentage of the trees with a mix of the above pollinators - 25% should work.

 

2 Variety 4 Row Combination Planting:  0C768 can be planted alone in combination with

Red Coconut (25C60), September Yummy®, Plumred III (24C50), Blackred IV (24C93), or Plumsweet IV (10P336).

 

0C768 could be planted very confidently in a 4 x 4 x 4 combination with Blackred III (22C321) and Blackred V (22C534), since they pollinate each other.

 

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.

 

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 and spreading, good vigor.
COLD STORAGE DATA  
OVERALL Very high on our recommended list:  Heavy setter, exceptional black skin color, excellent fruit qualities, long enduring on the tree.  Looks outstanding in the commercial block in 2011.

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.
