PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike with Yummy®gem (10P881), preferably at least 50%, 100% would be safer.

 

Other Combination Plantings:  37P562 could be planted in conjunction with several of the commercial varieties listed above in the pollinate list.  Typical plantings on an alternating 4 row spacing will require the addition of Yummy®gem in between the 37P562 rows.  It would be cheap insurance to spike the center two rows with additional pollinators, perhaps 25%.

TREE DESCRIPTION Upright and spreading, good vigor.
COLD STORAGE DATA  
OVERALL A very nice product, but some apex splits should be of concern.  We have not seen this commercially and cannot recommend it yet for planting.

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.  However, some varieties are easy to set and require spikes in about 25% to 50% of the trees.  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.
