Apple - Treasured Red

Treasured Red Apple    

 

4-22-38_Columnar_apple.JPG Treasured Red Fruit  This is a brand new apple developed on the prairies, for the prairies by the University of Saskatchewan.  What makes it so unique is the habit of growth.  It is not like any other apple growing in your neighbourhood.  

Treasured Red  An exciting NEW hardy columnar apple tree - an introduction from the University of Saskatchewan!  Super compact with maximum yield!  Instead of developing horizontal branches like standard apple trees do, these trees form fruit on short spurs that develope along the main trunk.  Tree width is 1 to 2.2 m (3 to 4 ft)!  Mature height is 4 m (15 ft).  The fruit is bright cherry red, large and smooth with a nice waxy bloom.  Fruit ripens in Mid -September with an excellent texture and flavour similar to a McIntosh apple, and stores well!  They easily fit into the smallest gardens; you can plant several along a fence or deck.  Plant Breeders Rights applied for.

Plums

Plums are either Asian (Prunus salicina), North American or wild plums (P.salicina or P. nigra) and Hybrid (crosses between the two). The key to plum production is pollination. Asians will pollinate other Asian plums. Hybrid plums will not pollinate other hybrid plums! Hybrid plums require genuine wild plums to set good fruit.

Cherry will not set Hybrid plum.

All these plums are very hardy and grow heavy crops if adequate pollination is present.
Eg: H-Z2-E,C,J-Early: This Means Hybrid, Zone 2, Eating, Cooking, Jam - Early
