The subtleties of growing
An unpretentious plant that tolerates sharp changes in temperature and is resistant to frost and drought does not require careful maintenance, however, when growing a variety, you need to adhere to a number of rules.
Landing requires a little space, but it should be lit, with good ventilation, but without drafts.
You should not choose a place near walls, barriers and between buildings, as young seedlings will grow, not forming a full crown, which will affect the amount of harvest.
The most suitable time for planting is spring, but this does not exclude planting in the fall. It should be borne in mind that, due to the reduced activity of the variety in growth, autumn seedlings can poorly take root and lag behind in development. When transplanting to a new place, 1-2-year-old plants take root most easily.
For planting a seedling, make a hole with a diameter of 80 * 80cm with a depth of about 1m. The distance between them is at least 3m.
Saplings purchased in the fall do not have to be planted immediately. They can be dug in the winter and planted when spring comes.
In the process of care, it is necessary to ensure that the root neck of the plants is 5 cm above the surface of the soil. This provides protection against root decay.
Description of the rules of care:
- plentiful watering for young seedlings (reduce as they grow up to once a month);
- regular loosening of the soil;
- pruning of young seedlings when planting to a meter height, in subsequent years - 1/3 of the length of the shoots until the tree is completely formed;
- removal of dead bark in adult trees, whitewashing of trunks.
Otradnenskaya pear is technical and is more suitable for processing in the production of preserves, juices and fruit drinks. In the absence of high taste, the variety has good yield and keeping quality.
