BLOSSOM DENSITY

Heavy bloom.

FLOWER TYPE

Small to medium white flower, strong orange yellow anthers.

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%-50%.

 

Combination Planting:  Yellowsweet II (38P827) could be planted effectively in conjunction with any of the above pollinators or the varieties that it pollinates.  However, the reciprocating pollination has not been confirmed (hopefully in 2009), so it will be necessary to insert some pollinators for the unconfirmed direction.  

TREE DESCRIPTION

Upright and spreading, good vigor.

COLD STORAGE DATA

  

COSMETICS

Warning:  Scuffs during harvesting, so must be picked with shims to minimize the skin damage.  Seemed quite scuff resistant in 2008 when handled reasonably in moderate temperatures, but has been a problem since then, especially when harvested in hot weather.

OVERALL

It is highly productive with outstanding quality fruit and quite EXOTIC FLAVOR, but the scuffing can be prohibitive.

 

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.
