PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

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

 

Combination Planting:  26C207 could be planted in conjunction with Plumsweet VIII (21C83), Plumsweet X (26C167), 27C714, September Yummy®, Blackred I (37P568), or Plumsweet XI (21P1155), perhaps on a 4 rows of each configuration with a little extra help in the middle two rows.

 

Other Combination Plantings:  The numerous varieties on the 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 Spreading and drooping, medium vigor.
COLD STORAGE DATA  
OVERALL Except for the small size, this variety is recommended.  It has been very easy to set with no crop failures, and we have found many outstanding pollinators.  The fruit is outstanding in quality with medium to small size.

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.
