IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Deadline for Spring 2023 Orders is September 30th/2022.

 

A grafting request is an order for us to produce the specific tree that we don't currently have available in stock. We must graft the tree and then it must go through a multi-month process to heal and grow. Only Once the small tree has completed two flushes of growth since it was grafted do we consider it ready to leave our nursery.

 

Orders will be grafted later this year, and should be ready in the Spring or Summer /2023.

 

All the requests made after September 30th 2022 will be grafted this late spring, and it wouldn’t be ready until Fall, maybe October or November 2023

Pollock is a pure West Indian type that was a seedling planted by Mr. S.H. Pollock in Miami, Florida in 1896 or 1897, from a fruit of a tree that had been brought from Cuba.

 

It fruited in 1901 and was immediately recognized for its superior eating quality, receiving commercial propagation thereafter.

 

Though it became widely grown commercially in south Florida during the first half of the 20th century, it fell out of favor due to lackluster production.

 

Pollock fruit are dark green, pear/pyriform shaped, and quite large, usually at least several pounds in weight.

 

The flesh is yellow, very low in oil content but nonetheless quite nicely flavored, superior to varieties like Miguel and Russell.

 

Our tree has produced acceptably.

 

Pollock itself produces B-type flowers, and matures its fruit during the summer from July through August.

Race: West Indian

Flower type: B

Country: Florida - USA
