wavy cordon, wavy cord, corrugated vertical cord
Espalier with a single cord that is wavy guided.
The wavy shape naturally curdles the flow of juice. This has two advantages:
- The growth in the head is suppressed.
- Vegetative growth and flower bud formation (fruiting) are evenly distributed along the frame branch.
The wave-shaped cord is easy to grow and maintain. To achieve a regular waveform, you should regularly tie the tree to a sturdy frame. Very suitable for espalier fruit with apple and pear. Similar to zigzag-shaped cord.
