  1. Ik vertrouw op Ebben, daar hebben ze m.i. echt verstand van zaken (hoewel uiteraard niemand onfeilbaar is. Dit is hun benaming van 'Ballerina' https://www.ebben.nl/en/treeebb/amballer-amelanchier-ballerina/#?search[0]=Amelanchier 'Ballerina'
  2. Dacht dat 'Ballerina" Amelanchier laevis 'Ballerina' was? (synonym Amelanchier lamarckii 'Ballerina')
  3. Hi, First, let me introduce myself. New here @ MoestuinForum. I love fruits and "freaky" unusual plants, which led me to pluots. Bought a "Dapple Dandy" three years ago, but never saw one single fruit untill I found out it needs a special pollitor and will not be pollinated by any other "prunus" variety as claimed by the sales person (gardencentre). I learned that they need to be pollinated by other pluots, Japanese plums, or Russian plums (the crosses with Japanese plums). Is the last one correct as suitable pollinator? I found many pluot names here: http://www.pari-daeza.nl/fruit- prunus salicina x p salicina x p armeniaca-a.htm (Note: Some seem Apriums see further below?) ‘Dapple Dandy’ (='Dinosaur Egg'), ‘Early Dapple’, ‘Emerald Drop’, ‘Flavor Delight’, ‘Flavor Fall’, ‘Flavor Finale’, ‘Flavor Grenade’, ‘Flavor Heart’, ‘Flavor Jewel’, ‘Flavor King’, ‘Flavor Prince’, ‘Flavor Penguin’, ‘Flavor Queen’, ‘Flavor Rich’, ‘Flavor Royal’, ‘Flavor Supreme’, ‘Flavorich’, ‘Flavorosa’, ‘Geo Pride’, ‘Raspberry Jewel’, ‘Red Ray’, ‘Splash’ 1 However, try to buy any of them! Good luck. WHY IS THAT? 2 Does anybody really know any of them? Any recommendations for growing in the Netherlands? 3 Does anybody know (reliable) suppliers in Holland, Belgium, Germany, or elsewhere in the EU? Could you give me a name, or website link? 4 Suitable pollinators? Will any pluot pollinate any other pluot? Are some of them perhaps self pollinators? I read plum "Golden Japan" is suitable as a pollinator, but also that it isn't a very "nice" or "good & tasty" plum itself, which is what makes me hesitate to buy one, since I would prefer a pollinator that is nice to eat itself. Plum Santa Rosa seems to be a suitable pollinator too, but also not the most "attractive" plum in my opinion. I haven't found any other suitable pollinators. That can't be correct, can it? Aprium: https://www.wise-geek.com/what-is-an-aprium.htm + https://www.davewilson.com/nurseries/products/fruit-trees/aprium-interspecific/ Varieties: Cot-N-Candy, Flavor Delight, Leah Cot, Summer Delight, Honey Rich, Tasty Rich, Flavor Ann ANY OTHERS? Basically the same questions as for the pluots. Finally, for now, are these pluots / apriums really different from other apricots or plums and do they really have a different TASTE? Answers, remarks, suggestions welcome, either in Dutch or English. I noticed other English entries and to cast this net as wide as possible I decided to write this in English.
