Pears, plums and cherries

Pears, plums and cherries

Pears are known only as cultivated plants. They are closely related to apples, but they have more warmth and rooted deeper than apple trees. Therefore, well-drained, deep loose soil conditions for growing. Pears can be managed very well. Some pear varieties are familiar with the phenomenon years turn ': the one year they spend a lot more revenue than other years. This applies particularly to older varieties such as' Peer Jutte. There are hand and pears. "Supertrevoux 'is an early pear (harvest in August), big and juicy with a red blush. 'Beurre Hardy' is harvested in September, rust brown, large, tasty and very perishable. 'Bonne Louise d'Avranches' ​​ready for picking in late September, quite small, succulent, green with a red blush, and some time save costs. Real store varieties are 'Conference' (slender brownish green fruit, a good self-pollinator) and 'Doyenne du Comice' (tan, nice and juicy). Good pears are 'Gieser Wildeman' and 'Saint Rémy' (both red boiling). Harvest in October. Most pears bloom in April-May

Pears as pollinators
Pears also are the best fruits and different varieties can pollinate each other, but also by self-pollination the fruit is formed. That certainly never so always ask when you buy expert advice. Good combinations are:

1 'Supertrevoux' 2
2 "Conference 1 2 3 4
3 'Doyenne du Comice' April 2
4 'Gieser Wildeman' April 2


Almost all plums are excellent pollinators themselves. So you have a tree to get enough fruit. But also ask advice from plums, for the pollination quality varies by race. Plums usually need more space. It can be quite large trees (of course depending on which is grafted to the rootstock). A beautiful old variety 'Yellow Kroos "that large numbers of small, yellow fruit is a great taste. 'Victoria' is a well known breed of chicken egg large, purple fruit. In this breed, the branches often be propped to avoid breaking, so heavy are the fruiting. 'Opal' shows small, tasty, yellow and purple fruits. This is an early variety: July-August harvest. 'Anna Späth' is a late variety (ready for picking in October) with blue-red, fairly large fruit. A variety of high yield 'Czar' (ripe in August). This is very fresh tasting purple-blue fruits that look somewhat hurt. Hurt the well-known firm, fleshy plums who works in the tutti frutti bakpruim be processed and applied. They are ready for harvesting from August to September. A good variety is' Italian Hurt. 'Reine Claude Verte' is the familiar green plum with special taste.


There are many groups of cherries, but in general there are two main groups: sweet cherries and sour cherries or sour cherries. Sweet cherries can fertile soil to grow large trees, although the number of races remaining smaller increases. And they need cross pollination. So a tree is not enough, unless you opt for a 'duoboom' where branches of different varieties are grafted on a rootstock. Good varieties of sweet cherries include 'Early Rivers', an early, brown cherry (ripe in June) and' Schneiders Splash Knorpelkirsche '(reddish brown, July), "Inspector Löhnis' is deep red fruit (harvest in July), the Wine Cherry "is ready for picking in July. It's a nice dark brown cherry. Very special is the "Meikers' which is a cross between sweet and sour cherries. The red fruits of which are harvested in June-July and it's a good self-pollinator less heavy demands on the soil where it grows. Sour cherries are excellent pollinators themselves. They do not carry on the old, but solid year-old wood and therefore should be pruned with the added advantage that the smaller trees remain. Good varieties are 'Kelleriis Nr. 16 'and' Morel '. The fruits are harvested from July to August.
