BLOSSOM DENSITY

Heavy bloom. 

FLOWER TYPE

Small white flower, strong yellow anthers, mostly long pistils.

POLLEN PRODUCTION

Strong, bee enticing.

PLANTING SUGGESTIONS

Solid Orchard:  Spike one limb of a percentage of the trees with Blackred V (22C534) - suggested 50%.

 

Combination Planting:  11P320 could be planted in conjunction with Blackred V (22C534), perhaps on a 4x4 row spacing.  However, pollinators for the Blackred V would have to be provided and it would be wise to spike a little extra Blackred V in the middle two rows of the 11P320.

TREE DESCRIPTION

Upright and dense, vigorous.

COLD STORAGE DATA

 

OVERALL

This variety has shown to be excellent for 4 consecutive years.  It is a good sequel to the Plumsweet XI (21P1155) and compliments Plumred VII (1C116, Red Phoenix) very well on the market shelf.  We can highly recommend plantings at this time.

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.
