PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike one limb of a percentage of the trees with a mix of some of the above pollinators - suggested 25% to 50%.

 

Combination Plantings:  Plumred VII (1C116) could be planted in conjunction with Blackred XI (0C768), Blackred XII (0C498), and/or September Yummy.  Typical plantings on an alternating 4 row spacing will require the addition of extra pollinators, as it would be extra insurance to spike the center two rows with additional pollinators, perhaps 25%. 

 

Other Combination Plantings:  Plumred VII (1C116) could be planted in conjunction with several of the above pollinators and/or varieties that it pollinates.  Typical plantings on an alternating 4 row spacing will require the addition of extra pollinators, especially for the unconfirmed directions.  It would be cheap insurance to spike the center two rows with additional pollinators, perhaps 25%.

TREE DESCRIPTION Upright, medium vigor.
COLD STORAGE DATA  
OVERALL This variety was seen commercially for the first time in 2011 and then again in 2012 and was OUTSTANDING with large size and great quality.  We now have plenty of pollinators established, so we can enthusiastically recommend the variety for commercial planting.

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.
