Testing Flavorella plum-cot
Here we are in the orchard at Dave Wilson Nursery and we’re looking at a Flavorella plum cot. This variety can be a challenge to set fruit but with the help of some great fruit hobbyists, we have some ideas of what pollinator may work and we’re going to isolate these flowers, pollinate this variety with another suggested variety and we’re going to see if we can’t make this thing set a tremendous crop.
The bag is around the flowers to protect it. Looking inside the bag, what we have is blooms that are just about to ready to open. So if you can see what we’ll have is no penetration from outside contaminating sources.
Pollens collected from the goldkist apricot to be used to pollinate the flowers that have been protected underneath the bag. The bag will be removed, the pollen then apply to each one of the individual flowers, contact is made, the Flavorella should be pollinated. We’ll come back a little later and check the results.
Here we are, we are visiting the Flavorella plum-cot and removing the bag, pollination should have occurred under the bag at this point and we’ll wait to come back where the blue tag will tell us later on if we have fruit.
Using the goldkist as a pollinator on this limb we find that we have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven fruits under this bag. That looks pretty good. Under this bag another example using goldkist as a pollinator where we have a set of one, two, three, four, five, six, it’s pretty good. I would take it exclusively goldkist as the pollinator.
The common question is what is un-pollinator to pollinated fruit? This is a pollinated fruit. These that knock off lightly to the touch are un-pollinated fruit.
