Today two varieties for the price of one hahaha.
I’m going to post them together, since both were purchased from the same Australian nursery, and for me they are two varieties that are always together.
Marcia’s Flavor Pluot
This variety is harvested at the end of July in my region, and it has several positive aspects.
Extremely productive, preserving good caliber of fruit
Very good fruit size
Very good flavor, it does not reach the excellence of Flavor Supreme or Flavor King, which are the ones we take as a reference for the best varieties, but it does have a good sweetness-acidity-flavor balance, which elevates it to a high category, it is very good variety
This is something very different from the previous one.
This is a champion, on par with Flavor Supreme or Flavor King, with all the complex flavor that characterizes them.
With the typical balanced acid-sweet and very tasty flavor.
As an advantage, I would add its early harvest (around June 15 in my region), as a disadvantage its medium-sized caliber, but what it lacks in caliber, it has more than enough in flavor.
This year has been especially hard whit the fruit fly (Ceratitis Capitata), and I have had to carry out several treatments alternating these two insecticides Deltametrin, and Lambda Cialotrin, to cushion the damage.
It is completely true that early maturing varieties are not affected by this type of pests.
The effectiveness of entomopathogenic nematodes, especially those of the genus “Steinernema feltiae”, has been confirmed to fight all these types of pests in a much more ecological and effective way.
