PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike one limb of a percentage of the trees with a few of the above pollinators - suggested 50%.

 

Combination Planting:  Plumsweet IV (10P336) could be planted effectively in conjunction with any of the above pollinators or the varieties that it pollinates.  However, the confirmed pollination is only unidirectional, so pollinators for the unverified variety would have to be provided.

TREE DESCRIPTION
Upright, good vigor.
COLD STORAGE DATA
Care must be taken for this variety as it will wrinkle around the stem end in a relatively short time if picked too ripe.  Better success has been obtained by picking a little less mature (about 20 brix instead of 24).  The variety is arriving to China by boat in good condition.
 
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for all local and short storage markets, as it has some of the most outstanding flavor, crispness, and juice available with good productivity.  The long distance shipping qualities are good enough when picked slightly earlier.  It has a great reputation of exceptional flavor.

 

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.
