Variety advantages: increased frost resistance, high yield, excellent taste, unpretentiousness to growing conditions.

Characteristics of the variety

Tree medium height – up to 3 m. Branches – thickened, powerful, brown-gray. Leaves – large, pale green, slightly recurved, hairless. The crowns are sprawling, medium thickened, back pyramidal in shape. Flowers – large white, bloom before foliage, 2-3 pcs. from one kidney.

The ability to transport and keeping quality in the – low. Plum is best consumed fresh immediately after harvest. It also makes delicious compotes, jams, marmalades.

Yields«Altai Yubileynaya» high — up to 40 kg per tree. In this case, the first crop is harvested 3-4 years after planting. Since the plum is an irregular variety, the tree may & nbsp; not bear fruit every season. Fruit ripening period – 2nd half of August.

Immunity. Under adverse weather conditions and poor care, plums can be affected by chlorosis, rust, dwarfism, and are susceptible to seed-eater and aphids. When the first signs of disease appear, it is necessary to immediately cut and burn the affected areas and treat the tree with chemical compounds. With the development of chlorosis, a plum transplant may be required.

Growing conditions

Homemade plum «Altai Jubilee» has increased resistance to frost and & nbsp; spring frosts, it is ideal for growing in regions with cold winters and long springs. But the drought resistance of the variety is below average, so during a dry hot summer, the plum will need additional watering. In general, the variety is recommended for planting in most of Russia and in Northern Kazakhstan.

Sort – self-infertile, i.e. incapable of self-pollination. For the formation of fruits, the neighborhood of other plum trees that bloom simultaneously with the Anniversary is necessary. Altai varieties of plums are ideal: «Katunskaya», «Chemalskaya» and "Memory of Plutov".

Care tips:

  • Planting site. For planting homemade yellow plum, choose a sunny area protected from drafts and north wind on the south or southwest side of the garden.
  • Soil. For "Yubileynaya" loam or black soil is best suited, with good drainage and low groundwater.
  • Terms. In Siberia and the Urals, most often plums are planted in late spring, when the soil warms up to a depth of 0.5 m and warm weather sets in. So the seedlings are more likely to take root in a new place and have time to get stronger by winter. In southern latitudes, planting plums in early autumn is acceptable.
  • Landing. Saplings «Altai Yubileynaya» released into landing pits with a depth of 50-60 cm, and 70 cm – in diameter. Then the hole is covered with earth to the root collar. The soil around the trunk is lightly tamped, watered with 10 liters of water and mulched.
  • Irrigation. Low drought resistance – weak point of the variety. Therefore, in the absence of rain for a long time, in addition to the main irrigation, which is carried out 3 times per season (before flowering, during the period of ovary and fruit ripening), additional water supply is organized. Pour 2-3 buckets under the tree every 10 days.
  • Feeding. Starting from the third season, the tree is annually fed with organic matter and ash, as well as fertilizers containing fluorine, potassium, nitrogen.
  • Pruning. are held once a year – spring. If necessary – more often.
  • Wintering. In late autumn, the tree is watered abundantly and a fluorine-containing fertilizer is applied. The earth around the trunk is mulched with a thick layer of sawdust, covered with coniferous spruce branches or agrofiber to protect the root system from freezing with a lack of snow cover. To protect against rodents, the tree can be protected by wrapping the trunk with roofing material or garden netting.
