The fruit plant enters the fruiting plant in the form of a pear in the seventh year, and when using the quince stock in the fifth year after planting in a permanent place. Productivity is growing rather slowly. The maximum productivity phase occurs in the tenth year of plant life. Flowering pear varieties "Starkrimson" in mid-late dates. Needs planting pollinator plants. Fruiting adult plants regular and abundant.

Large sized fruits, weighing 185-285 g, pear-shaped, covered with yellow skin with a blurry, maroon blush. At the stage of full maturity, fruit staining is red. The flesh is white, juicy, melting, sour-sweet. The variety is characterized by the attractiveness of the fruit. The standard shelf life of the harvested crop does not exceed a month.

Tree description

Transportability and storage

Fruits are poorly stored and do not tolerate transportation. The maximum keeping quality of 30 days can be achieved only if the pears are picked immature. Ripe fruits are stored a maximum of a week.

Disease and pest resistance

Variety "Starkrimson" resistant to common ailment that affects fruit crops - scab.

One of the common pests that affect these fruit trees is the pear gall mite, which is dangerous for the plant throughout the growing season. In order to avoid its appearance, it is necessary to fertilize in time to increase the osmotic pressure of cell sap in the foliage.

It is important to detect the pest in time, since it is much easier to deal with it when this tick has just appeared and has not yet spread to the whole plant. To get rid of the parasite, use a variety of chemicals, they are used to prepare solutions for spraying.

Drought tolerance

These fruit trees are considered very unpretentious, including they quietly tolerate dry weather. Therefore, if it is not possible to carry out regular watering, the tree will not suffer, and if there is such an opportunity, it will thank you generously for water procedures, for example, with an even greater harvest.

Fruit use

Juicy ripe pears are very good fresh. They are also used for making compotes and jams, only for these purposes it is desirable to harvest a little earlier than the ripening period, in the phase when the pear has not turned red.

  1. Delicious, healthy and beautiful fruits.
  2. High winter hardiness and drought resistance.
  3. Unpretentiousness of the plant and ease of planting and care.
  4. Decorative quality of the tree.
  5. Abundant and stable fruiting.
  6. Resistance to diseases.
  1. Tall tree
  2. Pears are poorly stored and carry transportation.
  3. Overripe fruits are showered.
  4. The tree begins to bear fruit at least 4 years after planting.

Variety "Starkrimson" has proven itself and enjoys well-deserved popularity. Gardeners around the world appreciated the beauty and gastronomic qualities of the fruit, as well as the decorativeness of the tree itself. Cultivation of this fruit tree does not require special knowledge and preparation - even a novice can plant it on its plot.

Varietal features

The pear variety is bred in the USA and is a clone of the popular “Klapp Favorite” and its subsidiary “branch”. The second name is “Red favorite”. As a result of the work of breeders, a more attractive appearance appeared, but slightly inferior to the “parents” in taste of fruits.

The advantages of growing: magnificent appearance and taste, sufficient resistance to cold and disease, stable yield of adult trees.

Disadvantages varieties "Starkrimson":high growth of the tree, late onset of stable fruiting, tendency to shattering fruits, a short period of storage.

Main landing rules

Special rules for planting varieties "Starkrimson" does not exist. Pear seedlings of one or two years old are arranged in the ground just like any other young trees. Just a few recommendations for the Starkrimson variety to catch on exactly:

  • Choose for planting pear sunny, dry soil, preferably on flat terrain.
  • To carry from fences and buildings not less than 3 m.
  • The size of the pit under the Starkrimson sapling is not less than 1.2 m to be dug out, 20 centimeters in diameter less than a meter.
  • Before planting, pour 2 buckets of rotted manure and coarse clean sand under the root installation site. Add here the mineral fertilizers.

After the pear has been planted, the borders of the stock and the scion should be clearly visible just above the soil level.

Care work

Pear care is picky. A minimum of effort is provided by a quite decent harvest from an adult Starkrimson tree.

It is important to carry out all the work in time so that the pear does not spend its strength on fighting drought, weeds or pests, but could easily form a harvest.

Harvesting and storage

Eating the fruit of the variety “Starkrimson” can be started from the time of their active yellowing. Work begins with the lower branches, gradually leaving to the top. On the “ripening” pears are arranged in a cool room with good ventilation. The ideal storage option is in clean and dry oak sawdust.

The use of fruits for commercial sale is very difficult due to the short shelf life and low transportability. Therefore, the cultivation of starkrimson pears is work for your own pleasure and the good of the family. Benefit, excellent taste and amazing beauty are the best qualities of pear fruits, which are presented by the "Red Favorite".

Breeding history

The Starkrimson pear story began in 1939 in America, Michigan. To obtain this variety, scientists used the variety "Favorite Clappa", and got a new variety of Common Pear, which later was named Starkrimson. It differs from its ancestor by the fruits of a beautiful red color. In 1956, Stark Brothers Nursery nursery patented this variety. Another name for this pear is Red favorite.

Description of the variety "Starkrimson"

A pear of this variety is considered high, as it can reach from 4 to 5 meters. The crown of the tree is thick and spreading, pyramid-shaped with narrow dark green leaves, on which burgundy tint can sometimes appear. The length of the sheet is from 3 to 10 cm, the tip is pointed. Flowering - middle late.

The fruits of this tree are characterized as follows:

  • the fruit can weigh from 180 to 200 grams, but the weight of some pears is much larger and can reach up to three hundred grams,
  • it is either pear-shaped or rounded in shape,
  • ripe fruit in color - red, not ripe - yellow,
  • the flesh of a juicy white pear is very soft and sugar, the description “melt in the mouth” is perfect for her.
  • the taste of the fruit is sweetish and sour,
  • the aroma is very delicate and pleasant, with nutmeg notes. With such flavor data, "Starkrimson" is often used and highly appreciated in cooking. It is added to desserts and dietary dishes, as well as jam, jam and jam. Compote is also made from this pear and liqueurs are made.

Subtleties of pollination

A pear cannot be pollinated on its own, therefore, other varieties of pears (the so-called pollinator plants) are used for this, which should be planted next to Starkrimson. These varieties include:

  • Bere Bosc,
  • Williams
  • Panna,
  • Dessert,
  • The conference,
  • Winter Dean,
  • Forest beauty,
  • Bere Liguel.

Fruiting and ripening

To determine the timing of fruiting, you need to consider what was used as a stock. The best stock is considered to be a quince - with it, "Starkrimson" begins to bear fruit already on the 4-5th year from the moment of planting. When using forest pears, this period is extended to 7 years.

Pears ripen from mid-July to early August. The weather and climatic conditions of the regions in which the trees grow will affect the timing. Harvest should be about 10-14 days before full maturity, while the fruit is still yellow. The collection of pears begins from the lower branches and gradually moves to the upper ones.

A high fertility level begins at the age of 7-10 years, but the pear reaches its maximum yield level from 12 to 16 - up to 35 kg from one tree. Starkrimson continues to produce a bountiful and stable crop, even in adulthood.

Preparing for landing

“Starkrimson” loves loose, moist and clay soil, so before planting trees, find a place that will be protected from the sun and wind. You should also prepare the soil for the upcoming planting and mulch the soil - lay organic and inorganic fertilizers around the trunk of the tree - this will help fight weeds. You can also insulate the lower part of the tree, covering it with a special material.

Conduct work in a timely manner, then the tree will spend its forces on the formation of the crop, and not to fight parasites or droughts.

Decide on the timing. Depending on which regions of the country you live in, the landing times vary. Spring is considered optimal in the southern and northern regions. The trees planted in the spring over the summer have time to get stronger and gain strength, due to which they will easily endure the upcoming winter. But some gardeners choose planting in the fall.

If planting occurs in the spring, it is best to meet the period from April 20 to 30, and in the fall - no later than mid-October.

Prepare a place. Gardeners are advised to do all the work in the fall, even if you end up planting a tree in the spring, because the soil in the holes for the trees will sit and you will not have to fear its subsidence later.

Sinking has a bad effect on the tree. When the root neck is closed, this can lead to the death of the tree. Therefore, when digging a hole, it is necessary to choose the optimal dimensions of the depth (45-55 cm) and width (100 cm).

Characteristic variety

Starkrimson, although it ripens by the end of summer, is a winter-hardy and drought-resistant variety.

The ripening period is the end of July-August. Reaches its fertility for 5-7 year. The highest productivity is observed at about the 10th year of cultivation. Pear Starkrimson bears fruit from 15 to 20 years.

Description of the fetus

The description shows that the ripened fruit has a mass of 180-250 grams. The form is standard pear-shaped or rounded and elongated. Pear varieties Starkrimson has a rich red color with burgundy sheen. The surface of the pear is smooth.

Characteristic of fruits erased Starkrimson:

  • juicy white flesh
  • rich sweet-sour taste,
  • pleasant aroma.

Having such attractive external and taste data, Starkrimson is used in cooking for the preparation of sweet, dietary dishes. It can be an ingredient of jam, jam, jam. Perfect for compotes and liqueurs. Often sold in dried form, while retaining its beneficial properties.

Good care will increase the yield of wood

The plant requires timely care.

Consider the factors that affect the level of yield and fruit quality.

Choosing a place

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

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

The tree is self-pollinated. But in some problematic situations, additional pollination is needed. For this quince will do.

Pruning pear seedlings is carried out in the early spring period before the onset of the period of the awakening of the kidneys. Necessary for the formation of the crown.

Soil mulching

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

Water the tree as needed

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

It is important to carry out top dressing in time. If the 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 feeding is carried out through the year in spring.

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

For spring feeding you will need fertilizers containing nitrogen. This will affect the number of future inflorescences and the quality of the fruit. Summer feeding is based on potash and phosphate fertilizers. They will provide the fruits with an excellent appearance.

Fruit trees are especially susceptible to pest damage:

  • pear mites,
  • bed bugs
  • itchy
  • fruit trees,
  • daytime butterflies
  • caterpillar haws,
  • apple flower eater.

Chemicals are used to combat these parasites (Nitrafen, Karbofos, BI-58, Fufanon.

As a preventive measure, mineral fertilizers containing calcium can be used. The goal is to protect the root system. Spraying occurs before flowering and after it.

The Starkrimson pear has an average resistance to a disease like scab. The main characteristics of the disease:

  • the causative agent is Venturia pirina fungus, which appears on the leaves on the underside of the plate,
  • dark green spots that soon turn brown
  • leaves turn yellow and fall off
  • the fungus spreads to the bark of the tree, the stem, petioles and flowers,
  • in the fight against scab, 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 are gradually turning brown. Fruits change their color to lighter. Soon they dry out.

Step by Step instructions for landing

Consider the easiest way to plant a pear, among all existing ones:

  1. Prepare a seedling - cut all thick and powerful roots at 10-12 cm and the top. Planting material should look like a stick without branches and leaves with a height of about 75-85 cm. Before planting for an hour, place the seedling in a bucket of water.
  2. Stir the soil from the ash pit in equal proportions and mix with water until a dense creamy consistency is obtained. Dampen the roots of the seedling in this substance.
  3. Loosen the soil and lay 10 raw eggs into it, then fill it with a diluted mixture of soil and ash and sprinkle with dry soil on top. After that, plant a pear tree seedling.
  4. Fill the pit with the remaining earth, and lay 10 more eggs around the perimeter - they will provide food for the root system. After performing all these actions, the circle of the earth around the table mulch with needles, compost, peat and sawdust.

Watering and fertilizer

Norms of watering "Starkrimson" are the following: for each square meter under an adult tree, pour up to 30 liters of water. As the tree was watered, shallow but carefully loosen the surface around the circumference of the landing. The tree will not need to be watered if it rained the day before.

That the tree fruited productively, it is also carefully fertilized. Knowledgeable gardeners choose a well-functioning scheme for this - they mix organic and inorganic fertilizers - potash, phosphate, nitrogen and nitrate (used during flowering). To accelerate fruiting, use phosphorus mixed with ash.

Certain types of feeding are used depending on the season:

  1. If a tree is planted in spring, then it should be fertilized for the first time in the second year. If in the fall, the fertilizer process occurs next spring. For springtime, use nitrogen fertilizer to improve the quality and quantity of inflorescences and fruits.
  2. In autumn, the tree must be fertilized in order to replenish nutrients and prepare the tree for the cold. Fertilizers are dug into the area of ​​the tree circle.
  3. Use fertilizers with phosphorus and calcium during the summer feeding of the tree for a good appearance.

Wood trimming

In order to form and thin the crown of the tree to trim. Regular pruning of trees does not allow the tree to spend all its strength on young branches, delivering all the juices and nutrients to the fruit, which has a positive effect on the quality of the crop and on its quantity.

A spring harvest done in time will guarantee a good harvest in the fall. Spring pruning is as follows:

  1. The crown of a tree is being thinned - the sun's rays will be able to warm up the trunk and fruitful branches without any interference
  2. The trunk is shortened by about 1-4, so that the tree does not grow high.
  3. All sections are treated with a special tool.

Pruning saplings from the first year of life, and in the second year, make sure that the height does not exceed 50 cm. Carry out the procedure for pruning branches with a shears or garden saw.

Use two methods of trimming the tree:

  • The first method is pruning branches, on which too many fruits grow, which ultimately threatens to break off the branches,
  • in the second method, all incorrectly growing branches are cut to the very base, and those branches that do not grow horizontally to the ground are considered to be incorrect.

Works begin when warm weather sets in.

Summer pruning consists of a method of pinching young shoots (unnecessary shoots are tipped with nails in the upper part) - thus the entire top is removed, up to the hardened area, which prevents the shoots from growing in length. Work begins in June and lasts the entire season, since the growth of branches only stops, and does not stop completely.

Autumn pruning period begins from the end of August and lasts until mid-September. The pruning of branches in the autumn follows this scheme:

  1. Remove all diseased and dry branches, as they can break and cripple healthy branches.
  2. Get rid of the branches that grow at a 90 degree angle.
  3. The remaining incorrectly growing plants should only be partially removed (only the branches that will interfere with the fruitful branches are selected).
  4. Do not leave hemp in case of complete removal of the branch. File a branch at its very foundation.
  5. Branches that have been cut, burn, to destroy the bacteria.

Diseases and pests

Even despite its ability to resist diseases, the pear can also be attacked by certain types of such parasites. Among these pests are:

  • daytime butterflies
  • bed bugs
  • apple flower eater,
  • gall mite,
  • moths,
  • itchy
  • pear mite,

Also "Starkrimson" can get scab. Symptoms of the disease are as follows:

  • the manifestation of dark green spots, which eventually change their color to brown,
  • leaves turn yellow and showered.

The fungus infects the bark, stem, petioles and flowers. To get rid of this disease you need to remove and destroy those fruits that have been damaged.

Fruit rot - a disease that makes itself felt when dark spots appear, which later turn brown, and the fruits change color to lighter, after which the tree begins to shrink.

Use Fufanon, BI-58, Karbofos and Nitrafen to combat pests and parasites. For prophylaxis during the setting of buds, use Bordeaux liquid, and during active growth of the shoots - use copper-containing preparations. And to protect the tree and its root system, use fertilizers with calcium. Process it before flowering and after.

Pear "Starkrimson": description of the variety, photo

Pears are one of the most familiar and favorite fruits in our diet. This is due to the fact that they are very useful and available, unlike many overseas fruits. The variety of varieties of this fruit tree just admires and leads to some confusion due to the fact that it is difficult to decide which one to give preference and plant in his garden.

Starkrimson pear: rules for growing and harvesting

Pear "Starkrimson" many gardeners known under the name "Red favorite". Description of the variety claims early ripening of the crop, as well as the plant's resistance to many diseases and high, very stable yield.

Pear "Starkrimson" bred by American breeders and is a red clone of the famous and popular variety "Favorite Klapp." He was used as a parental form in the breeding of this variety, which led to the result in the result of the red-fruited pear.

Care technology

Pear varieties "Starkrimson" refers to the category of unpretentious, but responsive to the high agricultural technology of fruit crops. When cultivating it, the following recommendations should be considered:

  • the most lighted flat and dry areas located at a distance of 3 m from fences or buildings are optimally suited for fruit plantations,
  • standard depths of planting pits are 1-1.2 m, and the diameter should be at the level of 60-80 cm,
  • in the pit for planting you need to fill a couple of buckets of humus from the manure and a couple of buckets of coarse sand with the addition of mineral fertilizers,
  • when planting a tree, the boundary of the stock and the scion should be located at or slightly above the ground level,
  • pruning pear plantations should be carried out in early spring, before the onset of the phase of the awakening of the kidneys,

  • the rate of irrigation of adult plants is at least 20-30 liters of water per square meter of garden plantings,
  • after each watering, as well as heavy natural rainfall, it is recommended to carry out a shallow, but thorough loosening of the soil in the near-trunk circles.

A sufficiently high productivity of the plant involves the timely application of fertilizers. It is best to alternate between organic and mineral fertilizing fruit trees.

Thus, the main measures for the care of pear trees are loosening and mulching the soil in tree trunks, systematic fertilizing with potash, phosphorus and nitrogen fertilizers, moderate irrigation, sanitary and formative pear pruning, as well as combating fruit tree diseases and dangerous plant parasites.
