Frueko Nursery started producing seedlings in 1995. Thanks to our modern technology and regular quality control, we have produced millions of apple and pear seedlings.
Frueko guarantees seedling quality, with virus-free and certified planting material grown in the best conditions. If you want a healthy and fruitful apple or pear tree on your property, you will find the right seedling with us. If you are not sure which variety is suitable for you, we will help you choose.
We developed long-term cooperation with professional fruit producers. More than 60% of our business is directed abroad. We can respond to the demands of both small producers and large plantations through our offer of different varieties and high-quality seedlings.
If you are interested in our production program and the method of ordering and delivering seedlings, feel free to contact us. We will respond as soon as possible with an offer of seedlings and the type of cooperation that suits you best.
Frueko Ltd produces and sells the most modern varieties of apples and pears.
We produce two types of apple seedlings: one-year-old and two-year-old seedlings. Apple seedlings are planted using the M9 T337 rootstock. M9 T337 is a virus-free clone of the M9 rootstock. We are selling our seedlings to well-known customers and the sale is contracted in advance, therefore reservation of the seedlings and advance payment is necessary. One-year-old seedlings production includes:
For a successful production of the seedlings that we sell throughout Europe and Russia, terrain position and soil characteristics of the nursery are crucial. Seedling production takes place in soil with adequate microbiological and chemical composition.
After removing the seedlings from the plot, we pack them carefully so we don’t damage the thoroughly grown branches. Depending on the assortment, 10 000-13 000 seedlings can be packed in the delivery truck.
Two-year-old seedling production begins with grafting in the winter of the first production year. Planting, as with one-year-old seedlings, is done in March. In the winter of the second production year seedlings are removed from the nursery. By planting two-year-old seedlings in the orchard, a full yield can be expected in the fourth year of production. Around 8 000 two-year-old seedlings can fit in a delivery truck since they have larger plant mass than one-year-old seedlings.
Frueko Ltd produces two-year-old pear seedlings. We are able to respond to all customer requests regarding the assortment of pears. Pear seedlings are produced on BA29, Adams and Sydo rootstocks. Two-year-old pear seedling production is the same as two-year-old apple seedling production. They are grafted during the winter of the first production year, and planted during spring. In the winter of the second production year they are removed from the nursery and packed for delivery. Depending on the production technology, a full yield can be expected in the orchard’s fourth or fifth year.
With over 35 years of experience in pear production we are ready to share knowledge with our customers. We will be pleased to pass on our knowledge regarding assortment selection, planting schedule, and appropriate production technology to our customers and future pear producers.
