Fruit Trees

With a strong partnership with the University of Guelph and many other industry leaders, we have developed procedures to enhance a strong root system which leads to superior plant health.

Our goal is to set up a complete and balanced tree for the farmer to ensure that the tree can nutrition when it is replanted in the farmers field. 

Royal Red 3-1

To insure this, we take soil samples of each field and analyze and amended as needed to proper growing conditions. We fertilize by using drip fertigation/foliar applications, that are specifically designed blends and combinations of nutrients to promote vigorous growth early on.

Our trees will not always be the biggest on the market in the first year, but the superior root system we supply is much more important and can outperform other trees in the long run.

Greenhouse Apple/Grapevines

Apple/Grapevine explants are surface sterilized to remove contaminants

Apple/Grapevine plants are multiplied by repeating subcultures, followed by transferring them into new culture medium

Healthy shoots are separated and transferred into a nutrient medium for root initiation and development of strong root growth

Micro-shoots with healthy roots are selected and transferred to the greenhouse

The selected apple/grapevine cultivars are taken from greenhouse for initiation.

The disinfected explants are transferred into nutrient medium for growth

Apple/Grapevine plants are multiplied by repeating subcultures, followed by transferring them into new culture medium

Apple/Grapevine plantlets are maintained under a high humidity environment with low light intensity and gradually hardened in the greenhouse

  • Cabernet Sauvignon CGCN 07
  • Riesling CGCN 7
  • Pinot Gris FPS 04
  • Vidal FPS 01
  • Pinot Noir FPS 71

  • Chardonnay 76
  • Cabernet Sauvignon 169
  • Riesling 49
  • Pinot Gris 53
  • Vidal
  • Pinot Noir 777
  • Seyval Blanc

The varieties we have sourced come from the CGCN-RCCV G1 repository from CFIA’s facility located in Saanich, B.C. and will be sent to the CCOVI Grapevine Virus Testing Lab to ensure material is virus indexed. The vines are then transferred to our lab where we will immediately begin to multiply the vines in our in-house lab, Hopetown Plant Labs. The plants will move from this stage to the greenhouse where they will be acclimatized, and in some cases; micro grafted.

Hazelnuts

Upper Canada Growers has been working with the University of Guelph to produces affordable, high quality hazelnut trees for farmers. With their help we have be able get them in tissue culture, by producing them in the lab we can ensure that they are true to name and nothing is from seed.

We are currently working on getting other varieties in the protocol and hope to have them available soon.
