Care

Good care will increase tree yield

The plant requires timely care.

Consider the factors on which the level of productivity and the quality of the fruit depend.

Seat selection

This variety loves loose, clay-containing, moist soil. It is worth choosing places protected from the sun and wind. Withstands long periods without watering, but this should not be neglected.

Landing

Preferably carried out in spring. It is necessary to prepare the soil mixed with organic and mineral fertilizers. When planting trees, the border of the stock and scion should be located at or slightly above the ground.

Pollination

The tree is self-pollinated. But in some problematic situations, additional pollination is necessary. Quince is suitable for this.

Circumcision

Pruning of pear seedlings is carried out in the early spring before the onset of the awakening of the buds. Needed to form a crown.

Soil mulching

It implies covering the soil in the area of ​​planting a tree with organic and inorganic means. Mulching is necessary to protect the land around the tree from weeds. It provides warming of the root zone in winter.

Watering

Water the tree as needed

The rate of watering plants varies from 20 to 30 liters of water per 1 m2. If heavy rainfall occurs, there is no need for additional watering. After this procedure, it is necessary to thoroughly loosen the soil in the near-trunk area.

Fertilizer

It is important to top-feed in a timely manner. If planting is carried out in the spring, the first feeding will be in the 2nd year. In the case of planting in the fall, the next time top dressing is carried out a year later in the spring.

Autumn top dressing is necessary to replenish nutrients and prepare for low temperature conditions. Fertilizers are introduced by digging into the area of ​​the trunk circle.

For spring top dressing you will need fertilizers containing nitrogen. This will affect the number of future inflorescences and the quality of the fruit. Summer top dressing is carried out on the basis of potash and phosphorus fertilizers. They will provide the fruit with an excellent appearance.

  • dark green spots that soon turn brown;
  • leaves turn yellow and fall;
  • the fungus spreads to the bark of the tree, the stalk, petioles and flowers;
  • in the fight against scabs, spoiled fruits are collected and destroyed.

Another pest is fruit rot. The causative agent is Monilla fructigena. It begins with the spread of dark spots, which gradually turn into brown spots. Fruits change their color to lighter. Soon, they dry out.

On the surface there are a large number of small whitish spores that, when in contact with an adjacent fetus, carry infection. For treatment, a Bordeaux mixture is used. It is sprayed with trees at the time of budding and immediately after flowering. Sick fruits are collected and disposed of.
