This is one of the prettiest pieces of fruit we've seen in a long time. WIth gorgeous, translucent yellow skin and a slight red blush, Flavorella Plumcot (Prunus x 'Flavorella') looks great on a dessert plate. When ripe, the medium-sized fruit is very sweet and amazingly fragrant!
You'll be thrilled with the productivity of these vigorous, semi-upright trees. The fruit looks like Apricot, but is the size of a Plum! Flavorella is another successful introduction by the famed Zaiger team.
The fruit features excellent, well-balanced flavor and the flesh can reach 25 Brix of fruit sugar. Harvest it at its peak for the sweetest flavor.
You'll like the way the fruit ripens in a uniform fashion throughout the tree. You can work the tree over once or twice, then eat your fill. Store the rest until you can prep your crop.
Your kitchen will smell amazing! This fruit is remarkably aromatic.
Throw an annual Harvest party and invite your friends. You'll all relish these early maturing fruits for fresh-eating.
The taste is a perfect mix of super sweet Apricot, with a touch of full-bodied acidity to the skin and the flesh near the pit from the Plum.
With firm flesh, these clingstone fruits keep well in storage. Prep them by dehydrating them, or adding to Plum puddings, cakes or rustic tarts.
Use them in a poultry satay dipping sauce. Puree and freeze them for smoothies any time of year. Create artisan jams for your breakfast toast.
Once it matures, you'll be able to harvest up to 50 pounds of fruit from a single tree, so long as you have a pollination partner. People have had good success with other Plums, Apricots and Plumcots as partner trees.
You do not want to miss the scent and scintillating taste of Flavorella Plumcots. Order your trees from the expert growers at Nature Hills.
You'll love using these versatile fruiting trees in sunny spots in your yard. Plant them with their pollinators as a useful privacy screen, or to cast critical shade on your patio.
Create a mulched garden bed, and include these pretty trees in an informal grouping. They'll become a spectacular focal point.
March a row of stone fruit trees along the length of your fence line. To create a modern take on the classic orchard planting, space the trees 20 feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
If you want to leverage the canopy for privacy screening, create a high-density hedgerow. You'll prune the trees in summer to control their size.
Plant them 5 feet apart on center, and allow the canopies to grow together. Prune the tips in summer to keep them the height and spread you'd like.
Add your pollination partners, selecting mid-season and late season varieties. Extend your season of fresh fruit for several weeks.
Let this become one of your passion projects! When you have tasted the first bit of your first tree-ripe Flavorella, you'll be hooked.
Plant Plumcots in full sun where they will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. To keep your stone fruit trees healthy, we recommend selecting an area that receives the drying power of the morning sun.
Make sure you select a planting site with well-drained soil. If needed, bring in additional soil and create a planting mound 12 to 18 inches tall by 3 feet wide. Create an attractive raised bed by simply adding a decorative border.
In the coldest rated growing zones, give Flavorella a spot that gets plenty of good air circulation. Avoid low-lying areas that can trap air.
Apply a medium amount of supplemental water, if you don't get enough rainfall. Add supplemental water during fruit development every year to support the needs of your tree.
Use a 3-inch layer of wood mulch to keep the root system nice and cool. Please pull back the mulch at least 6 inches from the trunk.
If you'd like, apply an all-purpose fertilizer in early spring as the new growth starts. There are also Orchard Sprays for fruiting trees, including organic formulas. Follow label directions.
In late winter, prune to correct the shape of your fruiting trees. Plumcots should be pruned in an open, vase-shape with scaffolding branches at a 45 degree angle. Remove branches that grow into the interior of the canopy. Shape your tree so it receives plenty of sunlight and air circulation in the canopy.
Thin early fruit set to 5 inches apart early in the season. You'll get a better mature size and overall outcome if you thoughtfully space out your crop. Thinning is no one's favorite task, but it really will help your tree.
Don't miss the fantastic aroma and creative taste of the Flavorella Plumcot tree. This one was reputed to be Floyd Zaiger's favorite. Enjoy!
