BLOSSOM DENSITY Heavy bloom.
FLOWER TYPE Large 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 a mix of the above pollinators - suggested 25% to 50%.

 

Combination Planting:  Plumsweet X (26C167) could be planted in conjunction with September Yummy, Yellowsweet II (38P827), Plumsweet V (40P60), Blackred II (21C262), or 26C207, perhaps on a 4 rows of each configuration with some additional help in the middle two rows of each. 

 

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 Upright and spreading, good vigor.
COLD STORAGE DATA   
OVERALL This variety is highly recommended.  It has been very easy to set with no crop failures, even though we have not found an outstanding pollinator.  The fruit is outstanding in quality with medium 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 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.
