PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike one limb of a percentage of the trees with September Yummy - suggested 50%.

 

Combination Planting:  27P740 could be planted in conjunction with September Yummy, perhaps on a 4x4 row spacing.  However, pollinators for the September Yummy would have to be provided and it would be wise to spike a little extra September Yummy in the middle two rows of the 27P740.

POLLINATOR RATINGS

0-1:  No conclusive value

2-3:  Can Be Used

4-6:  Good Pollinator

7-9:  Outstanding Pollinator

10+:  Double Barrel

 

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.
