Product information "Large-fruited Blackthorn 'Godenhaus'"

The blackthorn variety Godenhaus was selected by Gartenbau Ahrweiler, namely from natural resources near Trier, Germany. Of all known cultivars it is probably the one with the largest fruits (approx. 2 cm in diameter) and it also has the highest yield overall. The crown volume is also larger; Godenhaus grows about 3-4 m high, rather sparse and begins to bear fruit in the 2nd or 3rd year. Here our strong, already 2-year-old plants help to accelerate the yield. The early ripening period is not quite as pronounced as with the variety Reto, so with Godenhaus it is worthwhile to wait with the harvest until the first frosts. But then you will be rewarded with the longed-for, intense, tart-sour-sweet blackthorn aroma, which is especially good for making juice, jam, liqueur or brandy.
Short description of the large-fruited blackthorn Godenhaus
Flowers: White, dense inflorescences
Pollination: Although the variety Godenhaus seems to be slightly better developed than other varieties concerning the self-fertility, we recommend planting of a second type of blackthorn. Alternatively, the blackthorn may also be planted near a plum or damson variety (up to 30/50 m apart) in order to ensure cross pollination.
Harvest: October - November, even possible before freezing, but better wait for the first frosts. If you harvest too soon and the fruit is still too bitter and too sour, you can freeze it first – and then thaw it for processing. This has the same effect as the frost on the tree: acid and bitterness are broken down
Fruits: Large, up to 2 cm, the largest yield of all cultivars (but also has a larger crown volume)
Growth: Sparse, strong growth, slightly taller, 3 - 4 m
