Cherry plum - miniature plum

Cherry plum is translated from the Azerbaijani language as "small plum." Currently, it can be found in the gardens almost more often than a plum. A large selection of varieties with a high degree of winter hardiness makes it possible to obtain regular and abundant harvests not only in the south, but also in central Russia, the North-West and Siberia.

Short description of cherry plum

Cherry plum is a species of the genus plum family pink. In the wild grows like a shrub or multi-stem tree. The height of the specimens is different, depending on the species, it can be from 2 to 13 m. The leaves are green, rounded, with a pointed tip. In spring, plants are strewn with white or pinkish flowers. Cherry plum is an excellent honey plant. The fruit is a fleshy drupe of a round, oblate or slightly elongated shape and of various sizes (from 12 to 90 g). Coloring can vary from light yellow to almost black. Cherry plum is a very early crop, most varieties yield crops already in the 2nd – 3rd year. This affects the life of the plant - only 25–35 years.

The fruits are low-calorie, some 34 kcal per 100 g. They contain many vitamins and minerals, as well as pectins and organic acids. The low sugar content allows the use of cherry plum in diet food, including for cardiovascular diseases, as it contains a lot of potassium. Fruits do not cause allergic reactions and may be included in the children's diet. In the food industry, plums get juices, jams, fruit candy and much more.

Main types

Plum splayed, which means wild species and plum cherry-like, combining cultural forms - all this is cherry plum. It is divided into subspecies that differ markedly from each other:

  • Cherry plum Caucasian (typical). These are wild shrubs or trees common in Asia Minor, the Caucasus and the Balkans. The fruits are most often yellow, but sometimes they are also found in dark colors. Their size is small, from 6 to 8 g. Plants form thickets in the mountains and foothills.
  • Cherry plum eastern. Distributed in Afghanistan and Iran. It differs from the Caucasian in smaller fruits. The taste is dominated by acidity and light astringency. The skin color is different, from light yellow to dark purple.
  • Cherry plum is large-fruited. It combines cultural forms that are not the last in the gardens. Conventionally, they can be divided into varieties by region of cultivation. Centuries of folk selection gave us Crimean cherry plum with large sweet and sour fruits and Georgian, more acidic and tart, from which the famous Tkemali sauce is obtained. Very decorative Tauride leaf (pissard). This cherry plum is widely used in landscape design, its fruits are also very tasty. There is also Iranian and Armenian.

Column-shaped cherry plum

The variety was obtained by G.V. Yeremin in the Crimea. It is a small tree 2–2.5 m high with a very compact crown, which in diameter does not exceed 0.7–1.2 m. It does not have pronounced skeletal branches. Fruits are evenly located on small shoots and literally cling to them. In shape, they are spherical, large (40 g), with red or red-purple skin and a waxy coating. Berries of a pleasant sour-sweet taste with a characteristic aroma and a small semi-detached stone.

Column-shaped cherry plum is very fruitful

A feature of this variety is that it wakes up in the spring later than other types of cherry plum and begins to bloom. This avoids the defeat of spring frosts. Harvest ripens in the first half of August. High frost resistance of the variety makes it possible to grow it in regions with harsh climatic conditions, and resistance to diseases makes the Column-shaped cherry plum even more attractive for gardeners. But there are minuses too - this is self-fertility. The plant needs a pollinator.

Yellow cherry plum

Varieties of cherry plum with yellow fruits are known a lot. Their color has a wide palette: from lemon to orange. They contain more carotene than red or purple.

Large plum cherry plum

Large-fruited fruits have an attractive presentation and are considered the most delicious. Cherry plum is no exception. Years of selection work have led to the production of many varieties with fruit sizes from 25-30 g and above. A feature of such plants is that flower buds are laid on annual growths. Since the cherry plum yield is high, the branches, under the weight of the fruits, are very bent and can break off from the trunk.

Cherry plum

Cherry plum varieties with dark red or purple leaves have long been known in Iran, the Black Sea region and other southern regions. They are very decorative and were used not only as fruit plants, but also to decorate gardens and parks. Red-leaf varieties are highly resistant to diseases and pests. Not so long ago, it was possible to grow such forms only in the south, but breeders have bred varieties that feel great in Siberia and the Khabarovsk Territory.

Self-fertile cherry plum

Most species of cherry plum are self-infertile. For regular and stable fruiting of this crop, several varieties must be planted. But if the site is small, but you want to have a variety of fruit plants, then self-fertile varieties are preferred. By the efforts of breeders, such types of cherry plum are now available to gardeners and are in demand among them. But it is noted that if a related species grows nearby, then the yield of self-fertile cherry plum increases markedly.

Variety selection by region

A wide variety of cherry plum varieties puts gardeners, especially beginners, in a difficult position. So that money and time are not wasted, you should not pay attention only to the size and color of the fruit, although this is also an important criterion. First of all, the climatic features of a particular region should be taken into account. For example, planting southern varieties in Siberia, with a high degree of probability, will lead to failure.

The following varieties are suitable for certain regions:

  • Kuban. Fertile soils and mild climate make it possible to get abundant harvests of various crops. As a joke, they say that a stick stuck in the ground in the Kuban will bloom and bear fruit. It is not far from the truth. Varieties of both low and high winter hardiness grow equally well in this region. There are no restrictions on ripening. Autumn in these parts comes late, often keeps warm even in November, so the latest varieties have time to fully ripen. Fit:
    • Huck;
    • Globe;
    • Traveler;
    • Plentiful;
    • Marquee;
    • Eugene;
    • Chuck;
    • Sun;
    • Honey, etc.
  • Voronezh and other areas of the Black Earth region. Winter weather here is not stable. Frosts can be replaced by thaws. Summer is hot and dry. Precipitation is not enough. When choosing varieties of cherry plum, such characteristics as resistance to lack of moisture and frost resistance not lower than average should be taken into account. Later varieties in the region have time to fully mature. Fit:
    • Duduk;
    • Traveler;
    • Cleopatra
    • Nesmeyana;
    • Ruby
    • Byron Gold;
    • Victory;
    • Honey, etc.
  • The middle strip of Russia. This region is characterized by snowy winters with moderate temperatures (-8 ... -12 ° C). Sometimes there are severe frosts, but they are short-lived. The summer period is warm (+ 22 ... + 28 ° C), with sufficient rainfall. Heat more than + 30 ° C can hold for several days. Spring is usually long. Thaws alternate with frost, which affects plants with a short growing season. Flower buds are damaged. Fogs and rainfall are frequent in the fall. In October, snow may already fall, but in September it is still warm, so late cherry plum varieties have time to mature. Fit:
    • Black velvet;
    • Victory;
    • Oriole;
    • Masha;
    • Sonia
    • General
    • Plentiful;
    • Nesmeyana;

  • Northwest of Russia. It has cold winters and warm summers with high humidity. Affects the proximity of the sea. Частые оттепели в январе и феврале, как, например, в Ленинградской и Псковской областях, способствуют подмерзанию или гибели растений, которые имеют короткий период покоя. Снега выпадает много, но он может таять при продолжительных оттепелях. Весна затяжная, с возвратными заморозками. Лето тёплое и влажное. Количество жарких дней (более +30оС) можно пересчитать по пальцам. Осень начинается рано, часто уже в середине сентября прохладно. Для выращивания алычи в этом регионе лучше отдавать предпочтение ранним и средним сортам. Fit:
    • Traveler;
    • Gift to St. Petersburg;
    • Cleopatra
    • Лама;
    • Владимирская комета;
    • Ruby
    • Анжелина;
    • Витьба и др.
  • Ukraine. Мягкий климат и чернозёмная почва благоприятны для выращивания многих видов плодовых культур. Алыча соседствует в местных садах рядом с вишней и яблоней. Таврическая краснолистная Писсарди давно и широко используется в Причерноморье для декоративных посадок. Сильных морозов зимой тут практически не бывает. Лето жаркое, в южных областях — засушливое. Осенью часто тепло держится до середины ноября. Весна наступает быстро, к концу апреля уже могут зацветать деревья. В этом регионе можно сажать алычу со средней зимостойкостью и любого срока созревания. Fit:
    • Крымская ранняя;
    • Сигма;
    • Чёрная крупная;
    • Медовая;
    • Машенька;
    • Чук;
    • Генерал;
    • Евгения;
    • Обильная и т. д.
  • Moscow region. В этом регионе часты зимние оттепели, иногда продолжительные, что плохо влияет на растения с коротким вегетационным периодом. Лето здесь жаркое и засушливое, но бывает холодное и дождливое. Осенью много осадков, и нередко со второй половины сентября температура заметно снижается. Для Подмосковья подойдут сорта с хорошей зимостойкостью. По срокам созревания лучше остановить свой выбор на ранних, средних или раннепоздних (первая декада сентября). Fit:
    • Неженка;
    • Дудука;
    • Чёрный бархат;

  • Belarus. Климат в республике мягкий, без сильных перепадов. Зимы снежные, но морозы умеренные. Лето тёплое, с частыми осадками. Осень короткая, и уже в середине октября может выпадать снег. Большое количество лесов на территории Беларуси сохраняет влажность воздуха и препятствует сильным ветрам. Садовые растения здесь хорошо развиваются и плодоносят, в том числе и такие южные виды, как виноград и черешня. Для посадки здесь подойдёт алыча с хорошей зимостойкостью и сроком созревания не позднее первой декады сентября. It:

  • Ural. Из-за большой протяжённости региона с севера на юг климат очень разнообразен: от тундры до степи. Летом разница температур между северными и южными областями значительна: от +6 до +22 оС, а зимой отличается меньше, соответственно: -22 и -16оС. Сильные морозы (более -40оС) бывают, но длятся недолго. Продолжительность тёплого периода также изменяется с севера на юг от 1, 5 до 4, 5 месяца соответственно. Для выращивания плодовых культур в открытом грунте наиболее подходят области Центрального (Свердловская и Тюменская) и Южного (Челябинская и Курганская) Урала. Высокая морозостойкость и небольшие размеры растения (2–3 м) помогут ему переносить зиму. Сроки созревания имеют не последнее значение. Для центральных областей лучше остановить свой выбор на ранних и средних сортах, в то время как на юге будут вызревать ранне- и среднепоздние сорта (от начала до середины сентября). Будут радовать вас вкусными плодами:

    • Княжна;
    • Дудука;
    • Гордость Урала.
  • Башкирия. Территория республики расположена в зоне континентального климата, поэтому зима здесь холодная, с редкими и непродолжительными оттепелями. Лето тёплое, жара более +30оС в этих краях не редкость, так как потоки горячего воздуха приходят из степей Оренбургской области и Казахстана. Осень наступает рано, бывает, что снег ложится уже во второй половине сентября, но чаще всего — в октябре. Весной, к концу апреля, земля полностью освобождается от зимнего покрова. По количеству солнечных дней в году Башкирия обгоняет южный город Кисловодск. Это позволяет успешно выращивать многие плодовые культуры. Для получения хорошего урожая алычи важно обращать внимание на зимостойкость растения и его устойчивость к засухе. Сроки созревания лучше выбирать ранние, средние и не позднее начала сентября. Подойдут сорта уральской селекции, а также:
    • Княжна;
    • Чёрный бархат;
    • Принцесса;
    • Витьба;
    • Победа;
    • Анжелина;
    • Байрон Голд;
    • Лавина;
    • Владимирская комета и др.
  • Siberia. Огромные пространства этого региона имеют климатические различия. В Западной Сибири (от Урала до Енисея) летом несут прохладу воздушные массы с Северного Ледовитого океана, а зимой погода здесь ясная и морозная благодаря сухому воздуху из Средней Азии (Казахстан и Узбекистан). Большая часть осадков выпадает летом и осенью. Снежный покров ложится на всей территории. Тёплое время в центральных областях Западной Сибири длится около 5 месяцев, а на юге примерно 7. В этот период включены весна и осень. Температура различается на севере и юге от -30 до -16оС зимой и от +20 до +1оС летом соответственно. Восточная Сибирь (от Енисея до Тихого океана) славится суровым климатом. Воздушные массы из Азии приносят сухой воздух, поэтому зимой здесь погода морозная и ясная. Летом сюда поступают холодные воздушные потоки с Ледовитого и влажные — с Тихого океанов. Средняя температура меняется с севера на юг зимой от -50оС (в Якутии) до -18оС (юг Красноярского края) и летом от +1оС до + 18оС соответственно. В центральных и южных областях региона тепло (вместе с весной и осенью) длится от 1, 5 до 4 месяцев. Всё это сильно ограничивает выбор сортов алычи для выращивания в открытом грунте. Саженцы должны иметь высокую зимостойкость и быть только раннего или среднего срока созревания. Fit:

Анжелина — гибрид алычи и китайской сливы. На сегодняшний день это самый долго хранящийся без заморозки сорт. В холодильнике (при tº 0+2ºС) плоды хранятся 2–3 месяца. Интересно, что при хранении вкусовые качества Анжелины улучшаются. Мякоть зеленовато-жёлтая, сочная, кисло-сладкого вкуса, косточка очень маленькая. Съёмная зрелость наступает во второй половине сентября. Ему нужен опылитель.

сергей 54

Мой Чёрный бархат куплен саженцем. Зацвёл на второй год. Цвет сбросил. А в прошлом году примерно 1/4–1/5 цветков чем-то опылилась. Цвели не менее 10 сортов алычи: Кубанская комета (рядом), Путешественница (в 4 метрах), Подарок Санкт-Петербургу и прививки на них (Царская, Сарматка, Абрикосовая, Генерал, Тимирязевская, Чернушка, Дончанка ранняя, Июльская роза). В прошлом году прислали саженец Чёрного принца, купил в качестве кандидата в опылители Чёрному бархату (или наоборот, как получится).


Подарок СПб. Вкус, конечно, у него не феерический. Особенно когда чуть недозрел. Но если в полной зрелости, то очень даже приличная сливка. Косточка во рту отделяется легко и выплёвывается. Конечно, на югах она неинтересна, но севернее Москвы, принимая во внимание зимостойкость, сорт очень полезен.

Andrey Vasiliev

Алыча имеет ряд достоинств, на которые стоит обратить внимание садоводам. Она неприхотлива, уход за ней не отнимает много времени. Это очень скороплодная культура. На второй или третий год появляются первые плоды, а ещё через пару лет она даёт уже весомый урожай, богатый витаминами и микроэлементами. Селекционеры вывели морозоустойчивые сорта для регионов с суровым климатом. Всё это позволяет выращивать это замечательное растение практически везде, где есть плодовые сады. Посадите у себя алычу, и вы не пожалеете об этом.
