Nadia Sweet cherry x plum hybrid

It is plum-like. The one crop I got was of high quality. It came to my surprise. You would think it is more popular with such nice fruit. It is still early for a final evaluation. Maybe the tree is difficult to crop. I was disappointed to see not a single fruit this year. The temperatures where challenging in spring but not terrible. Other stonefruit managed to set decently, Aprikyra not so.

Yes.

I am curious about this Nadia / Candy Heart offspring. If I understand it correctly is there less IP issues with offpring since it is specific clones that are protected.

Also, since I can not find any pluerries here in Europe, I think seeds from a pluerry x pluerry cross would be interesting. (seeds less of a logistics and hygiene issue too)

BTW. Everywhere I read about pluerries they suggest plum or pluerry as pollinator. Would pluerry also pollinate cherry and/or be pollinated by cherry?

I’m not sure what IP is,but if it has to do with patents,the seeds are not covered,to my knowledge.The resulting plants though,can’t be sold,with the same names as the original.
I took a tour of Zaigers and their process is fairly simple and straightforward.Planting seeds in trays and trying them out,once they produce fruit.
Right now,the opinion probably is that Cherry pollen will only work with it’s kind,but that doesn’t mean people can’t try.

Correct, the patents are concerned with asexual propagation.

IP means intellectual property, patents are a form of IP, trade secrets is another form.

This is 4 years late, but I’m planning to graft Nadia to the neighbors curly peach trees, unless I hear that its a bad idea. That’s how I landed here, looking to see if people know how it does.
