Cherry Orchard: varieties and types of cherries

Cherry has been known to mankind since ancient times. It came to Europe through Rome as a result of military campaigns from Assyria in about 74 BC. e. Gradually spread throughout the continent. In Russia, cherry orchards began to be planted in the XII century, first in Moscow, and then everywhere. Currently - this wonderful plant is known and loved on all continents (except Antarctica). In some countries, the export of cherry berries is a significant line in the budget. In 2013, a cherry monument was erected in Belarus and the first festival, which became an annual event, was held. In the Vitebsk region, in July he gathers many guests.

Plant description

What is so remarkable cherry, if for millennia it remains one of the most popular berries in the world? According to the botanical classification, the subgenus Cherry belongs to the genus Plum, the family Pink. In general, about 150 varieties of this wonderful plant are known in the world. They are found in the form of tall trees and shrubs. The color of the bark is from brown-brown to dun. In the spring it is covered with snow-white or pinkish flowers. The leaves are elliptical from dark green to emerald, can be large and small with a serrated edge. Fruit buds are single, bunch and bunch. The berries are painted in a wide range of red flowers, from scarlet to almost black, contain an impressive list of vitamins, organic acids, antioxidants and trace elements. In folk medicine, it has long been used not only fruits, but also all parts of this wonderful plant. The coumarin, a substance found in berries, contributes to blood coagulation and is used for cardiovascular diseases. And among the people, since ancient times, cherries are called "heart berries."

Types of Cultivated Cherry

Selection of cherries is carried out in several directions. This is the cultivation of varieties resistant to diseases and harsh climatic conditions, improving the taste of berries, obtaining undersized and colonized plants, and much more.

Undersized varieties

This category includes trees up to 2.5 meters high. Planting undersized plants has several advantages. Firstly, they are much easier to care for than tall species. Pruning and processing from pests does not become a problem when the height of the plants is slightly higher than your height. Secondly, harvesting does not require additional devices (stairs or supports), which can be difficult for people of age and health problems to handle. Thirdly, a denser fit is possible. On the territory where one tall and sprawling tree grows, 3-4 plants of small height can be arranged. The crop will be no less, and in some cases even more, due to the variety of varieties. In addition, undersized species begin to bear fruit faster, already at 2-3 years, while on tall you will see a crop at 4-5 years. But in every barrel of honey there is always a fly in the ointment. The lifespan of stunted trees is significantly less, no more than 20-30 years.

Bush cherry

Planting bush cherries are convenient because they can be placed along the fence, which saves space in the garden. When forming leave from 5 to 9 shoots. Fruiting begins quickly, already at 2-3 years. Landing updates are carried out once every 7–8 years. Since the bush has several trunks, their replacement can be carried out in stages. Leaving 1–2 new shoots in the spring, in the autumn you will remove the same amount of old ones. For 3-4 years, you can completely renew the planting without reducing yield. The only minus of bush cherries is that most varieties give a lot of overgrown. To prevent the "capture" of the territory, when landing, limit the area reserved for it. Dig up sheets of metal or slate to the required depth, and you do not have to fight with the "aggressor".

Disease resistant varieties

Moniliosis and coccomycosis are the scourge of not only cherries, but also all stone fruits. Under favorable conditions, they can spread very quickly in the garden. The causative agent is a fungus that can persist for a long time in plant debris under the trees. Prevention gives good results, but it is better if the plant also has a low susceptibility to infections. Breeders successfully cope with this task. Many varieties have been developed that are very rarely affected by such diseases.

Ripening of cherries of these varieties occurs in August, when the berry bushes in the garden already, for the most part, have bred. Harvest of late varieties is used for processing, dried, boiled jam, stewed fruit, make juices and much more. Recently, many people have been freezing berries during the winter, and a large harvest at the end of summer contributes well to this.

From the end of June, the earliest varieties of cherries begin to ripen. In the second half of July, mid-season join them. For cultivation in regions with a harsh climate, such plants are best suited. When choosing a variety, consider the time of flowering, so that in your area blooming cherries do not fall under a wave of return frosts.

Self-made varieties

Even from the school curriculum, everyone knows that an ovary appears and the fruit grows, pollen must fall on the pistil of the flower. Most plants are pollinated with insects or wind. But a few days of cloudy rainy weather during the flowering of the garden, can deprive us of a good half of the crop. The way out of this situation is offered by breeders breeding self-fertile varieties. How do they differ from ordinary ones? In most self-fertile varieties, pollination occurs even at the bud stage, when the flower is not opened. Then the rain cannot become an obstacle, the ovary appears anyway. But even in this case, cross-pollination with another variety blooming at the same time increases the yield of a self-fertile plant.

Most gardeners consider cherries a separate type of fruit trees, although in fact it is a type of cherry. In conclusion of the review, I note two interesting varieties.

  • Delight Column-shaped cherries. The height of the tree does not exceed 2.5 meters, with a crown diameter of only one meter. Productivity is high. Berries weighing up to 14 gr. very tasty. High winter hardiness of the plant, with compact dimensions, allows it to tolerate winter cold well. It is resistant to diseases and pests.

    Berries weighing up to 14 grams are given by the Delight variety.

  • Leningrad black . A tree up to four meters high. Medium ripening. Productivity is good. Ripening is uneven. The berries are medium-sized, dark cherry in color, juicy, sweet, do not crumble for a long time. Resistance to diseases is good. A high degree of frost resistance allows it to be grown in the Leningrad, Novgorod and other regions of the region.

    It grows quietly in the northern regions of the Leningrad Black

Features varieties for regions

In the Central Strip of Russia, severe frosts (below -30 deg.) Are rare and short-lived. There is enough snow and it lasts until March. Spring freezing is an annual occurrence. Cooling until mid-April is almost every spring, so when choosing varieties of cherries should take into account the time of its flowering. In summer, the temperature is stable, strong heat can last for several days. In autumn there is a lot of rainfall. For plants, such a climate is favorable. Frequent rains in summer, in warm weather, can cause the spread of fungal diseases. Varieties with medium winter hardiness, resistance to infections and with different ripening periods will grow well in this region. Such as Amorel, Meteor, Memory of Vavilov, Vyanok, Izobilnaya, Delight, Leningrad Black and many others.

In the Moscow region, the seasons are divided, their change goes smoothly for 2.5–3 months. In spring, return frosts that can affect early flowering plants are frequent. The summer is warm, the average temperature is 22–25 degrees, intense heat happens, it can last for several days. In some years, there is a heat of more than 30 degrees, which lasts several weeks, but this did not become a permanent phenomenon. Stable summer temperatures, with frequent rainfall, suitable conditions for the development and spread of fungal infections. Snow usually lies all winter. Frosts, on average, hold at around 10-12 degrees. There are thaws and severe cold, but not for long. In autumn, frost begins in mid-October, and by the end of November, snow cover can be established. In the suburbs, cherry varieties with good winter hardiness and disease resistance will grow well and bear fruit. There are no restrictions on ripening; later species have time to ripen until autumn. Fad, Assol, Student, Brusnitsina, Tamaris, Griot of Moscow and others will be most suitable for cultivation in the suburbs.

Kuban is one of the few regions in the country where climatic conditions make it possible to grow cherries without regard to winter hardiness, flowering time, and ripening time. The southern regions are located in the subtropical zone, where citrus fruits grow and bear fruit. In winter, unstable weather is characteristic, with frequent thaws and frosts. The thermometer column rarely drops -5-8 degrees, so the soil rarely freezes. Snow melts very quickly, and rarely lies for several days. The warm period in the year is 9–10 months. Heat is set very quickly, air temperature + 20 + 22 degrees in early May is a common occurrence. The summer lasts 4–5 months. Precipitation is enough, but in the steppe regions, dry periods are frequent. In the Kuban, you can grow varieties with any winter hardiness and different ripening times. There are a lot of varieties of cherries grown here, which in the more northern regions does not produce such quality berries, due to a lack of heat. Here, varieties such as Kelleris, Novodvorskaya, Black Morel, Victoria, Anthracite and others will grow well.

Bashkiria is characterized by a clear separation of the seasons. Summer is hot and dry. Winter is frosty, with rare thaws. Snow is up to three months. Spring and autumn pass very quickly, in just 1–1.5 months. Plants have a difficult time with a sharp transition from cold to heat. There is very little rainfall in the summer, but droughts and dry winds from Kazakhstan to Bashkiria are a common occurrence. For the successful cultivation of cherries, it is better to choose varieties with resistance to frost and drought. Tall trees (more than 4 m) will suffer from strong winds, so low and bush forms will be the best option. For Bashkiria, one can recommend such varieties as Anthracite, Fairy, Octave, Bolotovskaya, Rusinka, Biryusinka and many others.

In Belarus, the climate is mild. In winter, the average temperature is -8-10 degrees, and in the summer it keeps at around +20 degrees. There are oscillations in one direction or another, but they do not last long. There is a lot of rainfall throughout the year. Fogs are frequent, which can lead to the development and spread of fungal infections in gardens. Strong winds are not characteristic of the local climate. Breeding is carried out in the Republic, including with cherries. There are many beautiful Belarusian varieties that are in demand not only locally, but also in Russia and other countries. In addition to local varieties, Meteor, Kelleris, Khutororyanka, Lada, Rusinka, Ksenia and others can also be recommended for cultivation here.

Siberia and the Urals have the most severe climatic conditions for gardening. Frosty winters and hot summers, cold spring and the early onset of cold weather dictate certain requirements for fruit trees, including cherries. In these regions, low-growing and shrub varieties with high winter hardiness, early and medium ripening will grow and bear fruit. Although in the southern regions of Siberia and the Urals, cherry has time to ripen in August. At the same time, in the northern regions of the region, early species during flowering can be affected by spring frosts. It is preferable to local, zoned varieties, the choice of which is large enough or to choose low or bush forms with high frost resistance. This may be Sverdlovchanka, Biryusinka, Vyanka, Zaranka, Fad, Izobilnaya, Ashinskaya and many others.

In the North-West region, winters are long and cold, with high snow cover. Summer is short and cool, and the proximity of the sea gives a lot of rainfall and high humidity. In spring, frosts are common even in May. Varieties of late ripening do not always have time to ripen, so early and medium species with good frost resistance and resistance to infections are preferable. Branches of tall (more than 4 m) trees can freeze or break from a lot of snow. It will be better to winter undersized and bushy varieties. For this region, the most suitable are Ashinskaya, Apukhtinskaya, Bolotovskaya, Izobilnaya, Shubinka, Zhelannaya, Leningradskaya black and others.

In Ukraine, a cherry tree must grow at every home. Gardens occupy large areas. Who does not know the famous Ukrainian dumplings with cherries? This is a national dish, like dumplings from Siberians. The climate in Ukraine is mild, which is greatly facilitated by the proximity of the two seas. In the steppe regions in summer heat and drought are not uncommon. Winters are not very severe, on average -8-12 degrees. Snow in the northern and mountainous areas in large quantities. The seasons change smoothly, within 1.5–2 months. In the south, the warm period is longer, up to 7–8 months a year. Precipitation is frequent, but insufficient in the steppe regions. For the cultivation of cherries, it is better to give preference to local varieties, of which a large number are known. Plants with any ripening period are suitable for planting. You can choose the height of the tree based on your preference. Belarusian varieties grow well here. High frost resistance is not of great importance here, but attention should be paid to drought resistance. Victoria, Nord Star, Alpha, Ksenia, Black Morel, Rossoshanskaya Black, Memory of Vavilov and others will delight you with a good harvest.

Winters in the Black Earth region are not marked by severe cold, on average about -10 degrees. Severe frosts occur, but do not last long. In summer, the temperature is around +22 degrees. Precipitation is enough. Spring frosts are characteristic, which in some years also occur in June. In autumn, the thermometer can go to minus at the end of September. Всё это диктует определённые требования к выбору сортов вишни. Растение должно иметь среднюю морозостойкость и устойчивость к инфекциям. Хорошо если это будет самоплодный сорт. В некоторые годы могут не успевать вызревать позднеспелые растения, а у самых ранних есть риск повреждения весенними заморозками. Аморель, Метеор, Память Вавилова, Хуторянка, Лада, Радонеж, Тамарис, Октава и многие другие будут хорошо расти в этом регионе.


I have Zhukovskaya, but still young, did not even bloom even once. Купила именно из соображений вкусности, самоплодности и цвета вишенок — почти черные, крупные. А вообще, читала, что она относится к дюкам — вишне-черешневым гибридам, и немного более зимостойка, чем обычные вишни.

I’ve been growing felt cherries for about 18 years. Cherry tastes better than cherries. The color is bright red, the bivat is strewn like sea buckthorn. Berries for cherries are small, but the stone is small. Delicious and very fruitful. It is easily bred with bones, where you spit, it will grow out. Even the sight of a bush covered with berries gives aesthetic pleasure. Whoever doesn’t try, you won’t regret it.

My wreath is already about 20 years old, and about 2.5 meters high. And I also noticed that the branches that are in the shade are not affected by coccomycosis, the berries are much larger than the others, though they ripen much later. Although we can say that this is a plus, for us private traders. I can recommend this variety.


Felt cherry is one of the first to ripen. Her berries are very sweet, without the slightest sourness. It makes no sense to compare it with the taste of ordinary cherries; they are completely different.


In spring, during flowering or in summer, when the branches are covered with berries - cherries are always good. There is always a demand for its seedlings, so new varieties are constantly appearing. Breeders bring to the attention of gardeners plants with even better qualities that allow it to be successfully grown in regions with harsh conditions. But to this day, varieties with more than a century of history are loved and popular. Now the difficulty in choosing is only in a huge assortment. Good luck to you.
