CHERRY

INTRODUCTION
  • Rosaceae is a family that includes cherries.
  • The majority of sweet cherries are self-fertile and require pollination from another plant.
  • Cherries are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as potassium, calcium, vitamin A, and folic acid, among others.
  • Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus varieties are used to make commercial cherry.
REQUIREMENTS

• Soil- The ideal soil for cherries would be reasonably fertile but also deep, especially where the ground is dry.

• pH- 5.5 to 7

• Temperature- •Cherry grows best in temperatures between 45º C.

IRRIGATION
  • It's critical to water cherry trees adequately the first year after they've been planted.
  • In The first week, they should be watered deeply every other day; the second week, they can be irrigated thoroughly 2-3 times; and after the second week, they can be watered deeply 2-3 times.
  • For the balance of the first season, water cherry trees thoroughly once a week.
  • Cherry trees that have been established for a long time don't require much watering.
  • Your cherry trees should be getting enough water if you get at least an inch (2.5 cm) of rain every ten days in your area.
  • In times of drought, though, it is critical to provide them with more water.
CULTIVATION
  • The best period to plant cherries is between December and January, and this fruit is grown primarily in steep places with sloppy soil.
  • The rootstock selected determines the plant spacing. Plants raised from seedlings, on the other hand, should be spaced 6 x 6 metres apart.
  • Fill a small container with planting media and two to three trenches, then water the seeds in.
  • When the cherry seedlings have grown to a height of two inches (5cm).
  • Indoors, keep the seedlings in bright locations.
