The leading horticultural company of Ukraine “Sady Dnipra” (TM UApple) has started planting a pear orchard.
Vadim Ermolaev, the owner of the company, wrote about this on his Facebook page: “The start of a pear orchard in “Sady Dnipra”! 5 hectares of pears have already been planted during a few days. A total of 30 hectares – almost 90 thousand trees, will be planted this year.”
According to Vadim Ermolaev, pears are a more difficult crop than apple, both in planting and in management. But “Sady Dnipra” team is not afraid of it.
“High-quality, beautiful and tasty pears will arrive on the Ukrainian shelves soon,” the businessman said.
Earlier, Vadim Ermolaev announced that the company would grow pears of the Noyabrskaya and Williams varieties.
As EastFruit already wrote, “Sady Dnipra” cooperates with the renowned Wageningen University & Research, located in the Netherlands. Explaining to EastFruit the reasons for choosing Wageningen as an advisory partner, Alexander Pakhno, CEO of UApple, summarized the reasons: “We want to be the best in the apple business, and to achieve this we must work with the best.”
