Vitazyme on Pear – 2007, Wayne County, New York
According to the researcher,
“There was a trend toward larger fruit size in the Vitazyme treatment (7.1 oz/fruit) compared to the untreated standard (6.6 oz/fruit) — and a corresponding increase in the percentage of harvested fruit over 3.0 diameter (35.9% vs. 22%). The Vitazyme program also increased soluble solid levels by 0.3 brix despite the high solu- ble solids levels which were produced this very sunny growing season.
One of the largest commercial challenges to growing Bosc pears is maintaining good return cropping levels, so a return bloom evaluation will be made at this trial site in the spring of 2008.”
