Cherry Meeting: description of the variety and features of care


Cherry, which is the result of the crossing of varieties Lyubskaya and Kievskaya-19, owes its appearance to the specialists of the Ukrainian Academy of Agrarian Sciences — NI Turovtsev and V. A. Turovtseva. Description of the variety, known since 1966, begins with a tree: it is a dwarf culture that grows up to 2.5 m in height. Cherry grows in a pair of trunks, has a spherical, broad and dense crown. Branches wilted, especially after fruit ripening. Blossoming falls at the end of April - the beginning of May. The first crop is obtained for 3-4 years after planting, one crop gives up to 25 kg of berries. The ovary of the fruit is formed on annual growths and bouquet branches.

The fruits of the Variety variety are large, dark red and flat-rounded in shape. Weigh in the range of 9-15 g, covered with a thin, but dense shiny skin. The flesh is juicy and tender, gives a dark red juice. A small round-shaped bone is somewhat flattened on the sides and is easily separated from the pulp. The taste of berries is sweet and sweet. Each contains up to 16.8% of dry substances, 11.64% of sugars, 7.6 mg per 100 g of fresh mass of vitamin C, and also about 0.8% of organic acids.

The advantages of the variety are high yield, durable immunity to moniliosis and coccomycosis, frost and drought resistance, transportability.

Necessary pollinators and care

Almost all varieties of cherry trees are not particularly demanding in terms of planting and care. Planting is carried out in loose loamy, or sandy soil, while the site can be located even in the shade. The best is sandy soil with neutral acidity, located on the south, west or south-west slope. The seedling is placed in a planting hole up to half a meter in diameter, and is watered well for the first 3-5 days.

Further care for the cherry called Meeting consists of watering, making additional fertilizing, pruning, whitewashing and processing crops from diseases and pests. Watering the tree should be regular and abundant, making adjustments with an eye to the characteristics of the climate.

Treatment of plants from diseases and insects is carried out in the period of bud break. Damaged branches and foliage burned. Whitewashing trunks carried out in early spring. Before the autumn digging nitrogen fertilizers are applied twice - at the end of flowering and 2 weeks after the first time. The application rate of phosphate dressing is up to 200 g.

Instead of potassium and nitrogen mixtures, complex preparations are often used. Do not forget about the compost. When pruning remove diseased and dead branches, give the tree the desired shape. The procedure is planned for spring, when the buds swell. To yield high, remove and root growth. For the prevention of coccomycosis can be used as a stock bird cherry.

The trees of this variety are partially self-bearing, therefore for them pollinators of the varieties Lyubskaya, Shalunya, Samsonovka and Observant are planted on the plot.

Meeting History

The variety’s homeland is Ukraine - cherry. The meeting appeared in 1966 in Melitopol (to be more precise, at the Institute of Irrigated Horticulture named after MF Sidorenko NAAS). Selection involved Nikolai Ivanovich and Valentina Alekseevna Turovtsevy, for which subsequently was assigned authorship varieties. In the role of the “parents” of the Meeting were the national selection cherry called Lyubskaya and Duke (that is, the hybrid of cherry with cherry) Kievskaya-19.

Valuable and large-fruited variety. The meeting was the result of the crossing of a cherry Lyubskaya with a duck Kiev-19

In 1995, the Meeting was entered into the State Register of Plant Varieties of Ukraine under the identifier 82074001 as a universal medium late variety, and zoned in the steppe zone.

Variety description

A bushy tree, low-growing, even dwarf (maximum height - 2 meters). The krone is dense, spherical, drooping. The leaves are large, oval, with serrated edges, green. Cherry begins to bear fruit in the third or fourth year after planting, the fruits are formed on annual growths and bouquet branches. Fruit weight can vary from 8.6 to 15 grams, the average cherry weighs 9 grams.

Variety Cherry Encounter compact, bushy, with a wide drooping crown

The stone of the cherry is free, of medium size, rounded, slightly compressed on the sides, it is separated from the pulp without any particular difficulty. The skin is dark red, shiny, thin, but at the same time dense, easily separated from the fetus. The pulp is red, juicy and tender, the juice is raspberry. The taste of cherry is excellent - from 4.75 to 5 points on a five-point scale. Fruits are universal - they can be used both for fresh consumption, and for winter preparations, cooking various dishes and freezing. Cherries of this variety can easily transport long-distance transport, therefore they are suitable for growing for commercial purposes.

Cherries do not tolerate neighborhood with apricot, pear, plum, walnut, currant and peach. Cherry and grapes are ideal neighbors for her.

The meeting is recommended for cultivation in the eastern, southeastern and southern parts of Ukraine, although it is found in other regions of the country. Love her in Russia. Officially, the variety is considered to be middle-late - ripening occurs in the 20th of June. The yield of cherry varieties The meeting is quite high: with good care from one adult tree you can get 25-28 kg of fruit. At the same time, cherries are highly resistant to frost, tolerate drought well and are rarely affected by such dangerous diseases as coccomycosis and moniliosis.

The fruits of the meeting are large and very tasty, universal purpose.

The meeting variety is partly self-fertile (some sources claim that it is completely self-fruitless), therefore for normal fruiting it requires the presence of third-party pollinators at the site. The best pollinators for this cherry are the varieties Shalunya, Lyubskaya, Samsonovka, Perceptible and Valery Chkalov.

Subtleties planting cherry

Any cherry, including the Meeting, prefers to grow in neutral and light sandy or loamy soil. For planting, choose well-lit drained areas that are protected from cold wind gusts and located on a small elevation. In this case, the meeting can grow in the shade.

The soil on the site where the tree is planted should be loose, water and breathable. In heavy clay or too acidic soils, as well as where ground water is located close to the ground, cherry will not grow.

Find out whether the soil on your site for the cultivation of cherries, will help a simple test. Take 3-4 leaves of black currant and fill them with a glass of boiling water. When the substance has cooled completely, slightly stir it with a spoon and drop a lump of earth into a glass (only you need to take it not from the surface, but from a hole about 35 cm deep). The bright red color of the solution indicates a strongly acidic primer, pink indicates a medium acid, and blue indicates alkaline. If the liquid turns green - the soil in the area has a neutral reaction, which means that it will taste like cherry.

If you find out that the soil on the site has an acid reaction, it will be necessary to lime it before planting the cherry. 0.5 kg of lime per square meter is introduced into acidic sandy soils, and 700 grams to loamy soils. Lime is distributed around the site, after which it is dug up to a depth of about 30 cm. If you plan to plant a tree in spring, the process of liming should be carried out in the autumn, and vice versa.

Liming is necessary to ensure that the rhizomes of plants become powerful and better absorb nutrients.

It is better to purchase cherry seedlings in specialized nurseries - this greatly reduces the risk of obtaining a return instead of this Meeting.. The age of plants should not exceed two years - the older trees will almost certainly not be able to settle down in a new place and will die. The root system of seedlings should be powerful and well developed, there should be no cracks on the bark, and on the leaves - signs of the disease.

Before planting a young tree in the soil, lower its roots into the Kornevin solution for 6–8 hours - this will help the plant to settle down easier and provide protection from fungal diseases at the rooting stage. Instructions for use of the drug are indicated on the package.

Landing time depends on climatic conditions. In the southern areas it will be better to carry out planting work in the fall, and in the north - in the spring.

If the planting is done in spring, the trees are planted after the last snow has come down and the soil dries out a little. According to the observations of experienced gardeners, cherries, planted in mid-April, take root best.

Pit for cherry prepared a month before the intended landing

The landing procedure is carried out according to the following scheme:

  1. Within a month (or at least 2 weeks before planting), a hole is dug at a site of 50–60 cm and 68–80 cm in diameter. If you plan to plant several plants, the distance between them should be at least 3-4 meters (although the variety is Encountable and short, but the crown is spreading, therefore, with closer planting, the grown trees will interfere with each other). From tall trees, fences and buildings need to retreat at least 3 meters.
  2. The ground taken out of the pit is mixed with mineral fertilizers — superphosphate (40 grams), potassium sulfate (25 grams), and wood ash. Nitrogen fertilizers and lime can not be added to the nutrient mixture - they will burn the delicate roots of young cherries.
  3. Immediately before planting, a peg is driven into the center of the pit, which will serve as a support for the plant until it is fully rooted.
  4. Around the peg poured a layer of nutrient mixture, and set the seedling on top, gently straightening its roots. Make sure that the trunk of the tree is on the north side of the peg, and the root collar remains at the ground level or rises 3 cm above it - cherries do not tolerate a deep planting.
  5. Sprinkle the roots of the sapling with soil, carefully tamp it down. Stepping back from the stem 30–40 cm, surround the cherry with an earthen roller so that when watering the water does not spread outside the hole.
  6. Tie a tree to a support, pour it with two buckets of water and grumble the soil in the bark circle with humus, mowed grass, peat, straw, sawdust or other similar material.

Over the next three to five days, the seedling requires intensive watering, but do not allow excessive waterlogging - otherwise the roots of the plant simply rot.

Features care cherry Meeting

To make the Cherry Variety meet year after year with large berries, you need to take care of it. The variety does not impose any individual requirements; therefore, care for it is carried out according to the general agricultural technology:

  1. Cherry is poured at least three times per season - during periods of growth of young shoots, flowering and fruit ripening, bringing at least three buckets of water under the tree. Focus on what the weather is worth - in strong heat the plants are watered more often, and in very rainy summer watering may not be needed at all.
  2. In the cold and rainy spring, trees are sprayed with a solution of honey (100 grams per 10 liters of water) to attract pollinators to them.
  3. Fertilize the plant begin with the third year of life. In the spring, before bud break, 20 g of ammonium nitrate, 10 g of double superphosphate and 5 g of potassium salt for each square meter of tree trunks are brought under the trees (to determine the diameter of the tree trunk, measure the crown of the fruit tree and multiply this figure by 1.5) . When the cherries ottsvetut, they feed the wood ash (liter jar of 10 liters of water under each tree) and a solution of 2 tbsp. l of potassium sulfate and 1 tbsp. l urea (also per 10 liters of water). In the period of fruit growth, trees are again fertilized with ashes, and after autumn leaves fall, 1–2 buckets of humus are placed under each tree.
  4. In the spring, pruning of the crown is carried out, removing the weak, sick, dried and thickening branches. Be sure to clean radical growth.
  5. Once in 3-4 years, the soil in the area where the cherry grows is lime - this procedure not only normalizes the acidity of the soil, but also helps the root system to better absorb the nutrients. In addition, lime is necessary for cherries to form stones.
  6. Two or three times a season, loosen the soil in the tree near the trunk circle, and in the fall - a shallow digging.
  7. So that the cherry does not suffer from diseases, do not neglect the implementation of preventive measures. In the spring, whitewash the shtamb and part of the lower branches with a special tool (it can be purchased at any garden store). At the beginning of the growing season, spray the tree with 3% Bordeaux liquid, blue vitriol (100 grams per 10 liters of water) or a fungicide (for example, Horus). Prophylactic spraying with fungicidal preparations is carried out immediately after the flowers wither and then repeat after another 10 days. Be sure to remove from the trees and burn the fallen leaves and remnants of the fruit. Grease deep wounds on the bark with garden bars to prevent infection. If prophylaxis did not work, and you noticed signs of infection with a disease on a cherry, treat it with appropriate insecticidal or fungicidal agents.
  8. If the summer is droughty, in the fall, spend water-charging irrigation, bringing at least 10 buckets of water under each tree. In rainy years there is no need for such an event.

Reviews of cherry varieties Meeting

I have a cherry. The meeting is growing for the fourth year. My all really like it. I bought in Agruz. Height 2 meters. Round bush with large leaves, very large and very tasty berries. To taste the berries are more similar to sweet cherry, and in appearance - cherry.


Yes, I also have the Vladimirskaya variety and I like it, but the Vstrecha variety is sweeter, the yield is high and the fruits are larger. My daughters during fruiting do not depart from this variety.


I am pleased with the variety Meeting. By maturity average. Partially samoplodny. Resistant to moniliosis and coccomycosis. Drought resistant and winter hardy. Fruits are large, flat-round.


Cherry Meeting is not too demanding to care, rarely ill and gives excellent yields, and thanks to its compact size and aesthetic appearance of the crown can serve as a real decoration of the site. By following the simple rules of agrotechnology, you will receive a return from the plant every year in the form of delicious large fruits.

Inference history

The authors of the variety are Nikolay and Valentina Turovtsev, employees of the Melitopol Institute of Irrigated Gardening them. MF Sidorenko. The hybrid was obtained in 1966 by crossing the “Lyubskaya” cherry and the “Kievskaya-19” cherry and cherry hybrid.

In 1995, this medium late variety of universal purpose, zoned in the steppe zone, was entered into the State Register of Plant Varieties of Ukraine, its identification number is 82074001.

Tree description

Cherry "Encounter" refers to the bushy cherries, it is of short stature, which makes it possible to attribute the hybrid to natural dwarfs: rarely does a tree grow above two meters. To the crown, it has a spherical, rather dense branch, its components, drooping.

The root system is a collection of both vertical and horizontal roots. Vertical tend to the depth and can reach two meters in length, while horizontal ones, departing at a small 10-40 cm depth from the root collar, expand, giving annually abundant basal growth. The area of ​​distribution of horizontal roots is one and a half times larger than the crown projection.

The leaves are rich green enough large, they have an oval shape and a dentate edge.

The flowers are collected in small umbellate inflorescences, which, depending on the growing climate can be both white and pinkish.

Fruit Description

Cherry fruit “Encounter” large, the average weight of a berry is 9-10 g; individual berries reach 15 g of weight. In general, they are approximately equal in size. The shape of the cherry is a somewhat flattened ball. Stone with such outstanding sizes of berries is average, it is easy to separate it from the tender pulp that melts in the mouth. The thin glossy peel painted in dark red color, nevertheless rather dense. It is quite easily separated from the pulp.

Pollinators, unwanted and desirable neighbors

This variety is considered partially self-fertile, although in some sources it is called completely self-barren. In any case, the Meeting Cherry needs the presence of third-party pollinators:

  • "Lubskaya"
  • "Samsonovka",
  • "Minors",
  • "Visible".

We can not allow the neighbors of the "Meeting" were:

Fruiting and Yield

The tree enters a fruiting period three to four years after planting, forming fruits on the bouquet branches and the growths of one year old. A single adult tree can, with proper care, produce 20 kg of fruits, in some cases it is possible to harvest 25-28 kg from one plant.

Growing conditions

For any cherry, and "Meeting" is no exception, the preferred soil:

  • neutral,
  • light sandy loam
  • loam.

Planted a tree in areas protected from sharp drafts and water stagnation. Желательно, чтобы растение получало достаточно солнечного света, хотя от его недостатка оно особо не пострадает, поскольку неплохо себя чувствует и на затенённых участках.

Нет смысла высаживать вишню «Встреча» в тяжелые глинистые или слишком кислые почвы, а также на местах близкого расположения грунтовых вод.

Landing rules

The optimum time for planting depends on the growing climate: if the region is southern, then it is better to plant the cherry in autumn, in the northern, planting will be more appropriate in the spring, after the snow melts and the soil dries out.

Experienced gardeners advise planting cherry trees in mid-spring, starting from April 15, then they take root better.

If you are not sure what the soil is, you can do a simple test to find out. To do this, prepare the infusion by brewing 4 sheets of black currant with a glass of boiling water and cooling it to room temperature. In the infusion should put a clump of earth, taken at a depth of 30-40 centimeters. The color of the resulting solution can be judged on the type of soil:

  • bright red - strongly sour,
  • pink - sour,
  • blue - alkaline,
  • green - neutral.

A gardener who intends to plant several seedlings should maintain the distance between the holes. not less than 3-4 meters, because, despite the short stature and even dwarfism, the “Encounter” has a luxurious spreading crown, and the root system grows one and a half times wider than its projection. Otherwise, the trees will take away from each other resource and will not grow well. The rule of 3-4 meters indent should be observed in relation to other, especially higher trees, as well as farm buildings.

The well itself must be at least half a meter wide and deep.

Just before the landing, the hole is supplied with a peg-support, to which a young sapling is tied. Optimally, to plant the plant was not older than two years, more adults have very few chances to take root.

Putting a nutritious earthen mixture around the peg-support, the roots of the seedling, which should be strong and have a healthy appearance, gently straighten it. When planting, the peg should be on the south side, while the trunk - from the north. The root neck can not be buried, it must be either flush with the ground, or even 3 cm to rise.

Carefully fill the ground with fertilizer in the hole and tamping it down, you should build an earthen roller at a distance of 30-40 cm from the trunk. This is to prevent water from escaping from the well.

After the end of the ground work, the tree is tied to a support, watered with 20 liters of water and mulch the tree trunk. For mulch you can use:

After planting in the coming days, the young tree should be watered hard, while avoiding stagnant water and decay of the roots.

Seasonal care features

Like any garden tree, cherry "Meeting" needs care, which, however, is no different from the usual care of cherry trees.

In general, cherries are actively watered three times a season:

  • when young shoots grow,
  • when the tree blooms,
  • when the fruits ripen.
However, meteorological conditions should be taken into account: moisture may be needed more in too hot and arid weather, but in rainy summer it may not be necessary to irrigate at all.

At a time, at least three buckets of water are brought under each tree.

If the spring is too cold and rainy, you must additionally attract pollinating insects. To do this, dissolve 100 g of honey in a bucket of water and spray the trees with the resulting liquid.

A three year old plant already needs to start fertilizing. Before the buds bloom, each square of the tree trunk should be fed for the first time in a season a mixture of:

  • 20 g of ammonium nitrate,
  • 10 g of double superphosphate,
  • 5 g of potassium salt.
The diameter of the wheel circle is larger than the crown projection by one and a half times.

The second time the cherry is “poured” with the mixture:

  • wood ash - 1 liter per bucket of water,
  • potassium sulphate solution - 2 tbsp. spoons and urea - 1 tbsp. spoon made in the same amount of water.
The following top dressing in the form of ash solution is introduced when the fruit grows intensively.

After the tree sheds leaves, it needs to be backed up with one or two humus buckets before a long rest period.

Soil care

During the season it is advisable to loosen the trunk circle twice or three times. and before winter, dig it up deeply so as not to damage the root system.

While the sapling is still young and spends the main forces on engraftment, then “freeloaders” appear here - weeds, which should be regularly removed. Rid the gardener from this need can mulching.

Preventive treatment

Despite the resistance of this variety to all kinds of diseases, one should not neglect preventive measures:

  • spring whitewash with special preparations
  • spraying at the beginning of the growing season with a fungicide, copper sulphate or bordeaux liquid,
  • treatment with a fungicide after shedding the petals and re-spraying after 10 days,
  • freeing the soil from dead leaves and windfalls,
  • Lubrication of deep wounds with the help of wounds in order to prevent infection.

It is better to alternate fungicidal means in order to avoid the resistance of possible pathogens, the benefit of which modern industry offers in many.

If, contrary to preventive measures or due to neglect of them, you saw signs of disease on your cherry, treat the plant with appropriate special means - insecticides or fungicides.

Pruning and removal of basal shoots

It is necessary to thin out the crown, because this variety is characterized by rapid growth of shoots. It is better to do this in spring, when fragments that have not yet survived the winter are clearly visible. It is also necessary to get rid of weak and excessively thickening branches.

It is equally important to regularly remove basal shoots that deplete the plant and take a certain part of the nutrients from it.

Preparing for the winter

In regions where winters are not too severe, the cherry “Meeting” does not need special events until the fall, in addition to the standard procedure of whitewashing and carrying out water-charging irrigation (10 buckets of water), if the summer was very dry. After a normal or rainy summer, there is no need for this procedure.

In regions with cold winters and bitter frosts, you should additionally make autumn sanitary pruning, carry out a circular bending of the branches, mulch the tree trunk and cover it with snow, you can mix it with sawdust.

Cherry "Meeting", acquiring outstanding qualities, has not lost, however, the ability to resist diseases, frost, drought and other troubles trees. Because of this, this variety is so valued by both amateur gardeners and specialists.

History of origin

The hybrid was bred in 1966 on the territory of Ukraine. To create a new hybrid of cherries, the parent varieties Lyubskaya and Kievskaya were taken 19. As Kievskaya 19 belongs to the Dyuk, that is, it is a hybrid of cherry and sweet cherry, the new variety combined the positive qualities of two types of fruit trees.

Diseases and pests

There is no sort of cherry that does not hurt, and no insects appear on it. To combat the diseases, they use Bordeaux liquid, drugs "Horus" or "Topaz". The last two chemicals are used if the more benign methods fail.

Among the insects most often found on the plant aphid, weevil and cherry fly. From insects helps treatment with soapy water and biological products. In addition, the neighborhood of cherries with garlic, marigolds or valerian will scare off harmful insects.

The main varieties of cherry ordinary

Emaciated Stepanenko: I weighed 108, and now 65. At night she drank warm. Read more here.

For convenience, the description indicates which varieties are better to plant with each other, how they are pollinated and how frost-resistant they are. It depends on the last factor whether it will grow well in your lane and it will be possible to harvest from a certain variety.

Cherry Seedling number 1

The variety was derived by the method of free pollination from a variety of ordinary sour cherries. It tolerates fungal diseases that affect the leaves of plants (coccomycosis). The size of the tree is average, the crown is rounded. Berries weigh about 3 grams, have a yellow juicy flesh, sweet and sour in taste. The bones of the fruit are small, and the juice is light. The plant begins to bear fruit 3 years after planting. The harvest ripens in late June - early July. The variety is partially self-fertile, i.e. Cherry trees are cross-pollinated, but for this, other suitable varieties should be found in the neighborhood. The variety is suitable for cultivation in the south and in the central zone of Russia.

Cherry Novodvorskaya

Trees varieties have a spherical crown. The size of the plant is average, the fruits are large. The taste of dark red flesh is sour, but juicy. The berries contain a small bone and juice of bright color.

I was able to get rid of ARTHROSIS AND OSTEOCHONDROSIS PER MONTH! Operations are not needed. Read more here.

The variety gives a good harvest, but is not resistant to coccomycosis. Berries ripen in mid-July. Partially samoplodny. The variety is suitable for the territory of Urayug of Russia.

Cherry Wreath

This variety can be obtained by pollination varieties Novodvorskaya. The tree is large, tall. The crown of trees has an average thickness. The berries are medium, round shape.

Cherry Wreath can be pollinated by the following varieties:

  • Seedling number 1,
  • Novodvorskaya,
  • Folk,
  • Golden Lošicka.

Inside the berries are soft and juicy, sweet-sour to the taste. The stone is small and well separated from the pulp, the juice is dark red,. Berries appear in the 3rd year after planting. The fruits ripen in the middle of July. Cherry Wreath is frost resistant, but moderately resistant to fungal diseases. Fruiting year. The variety is suitable for the central zone of Russia, the Urals and Siberia.

Asterisk Cherry

The variety was obtained from an indeterminate Michurin variety. The tree is large, high, crown of medium thickness. Shrubs bloom early, and the fruits ripen in early July.

Pollination occurs using these varieties:

  • Seedling number 1,
  • Wreath,
  • Several varieties of cherries.

Fruits are round, large, juicy in taste. The flesh and juice are dark red. Inside the bone is large and well separated from the pulp. High-yield culture. Fruits begin to appear on the 4th year after planting. Plants are resistant to fungal diseases and frost. Can be grown in Siberia.

Chocolate girl

The variety is early ripe, high-yielding. The main advantages are frost resistance and compactness and small tree growth. The fruits are round, can reach up to 2 cm in diameter, weighing 3.6 g. The susceptibility to diseases is average. Suitable for growing in the central regions of Russia with severe winters and spring frosts.


Low-growing bushes, begin to bear fruit at the age of 3-4 years. High-yielding variety, from one tree you can get 10-12 kg of berries. The variety is self-fertile. Ripens in late June. Berries oval color is saturated and claret. The flesh is juicy with a sweet and sour taste. Berries are large, weighing up to 4.6 g, oval.

Hybrid of sweet cherry and cherry. Early ripe variety. Resistant to diseases. Berries are large, weighing up to 10 g, sweet with the scent of sweet cherries. Self-fertile.

Non-frost-resistant, therefore suitable for cultivation in the Moscow region and in the south of Russia.


The average tree height is 2-2.5 m. The fruits are sweet, large, weighing up to 5 g.

The main advantages of the variety are: frost-resistant (it can be grown in Siberia and the Urals), highly productive (up to 25 kg of berries can be removed from a single tree), resistant to diseases.

Planting cherry

It is recommended to plant trees in the spring. It is necessary to buy plants in the fall and prikopat for the winter. Cover shrubs should spruce. When buying it is important to ensure that the bridge was about 60 centimeters, 2-3 cm in diameter, with a length of main branches about 60 cm (parameters of a two-year-old sapling).

It is necessary to plant a crop after the ground has finally warmed up, and the buds have not yet begun to bloom. Pits for planting should start cooking in the fall.

Soil with neutral acidity will do:

  • Sandy
  • Sandy,
  • Loamy drained.

What should be the conditions for growing crops? It is necessary to abandon the planting of crops in the lowlands and places with high humidity. Cherry likes well-lit areas.

The soil should be treated if it is acidic with lime to reduce the level of acidity. This will require: 400 grams of lime or dolomite flour per 1 square. m. Scatter on the surface and dig a shovel and add organic fertilizer, such as compost or manure at the rate of 15 kg per 1 sq. km. m

Tip! Manure and lime must be applied at different times. It is necessary to cultivate the soil with lime before organic fertilizers are applied.

The distance between the bushes at the time of landing should be about 3 meters. Consideration should be given to the possibility of pollination in cross-pollinated varieties. In this case, you will need to plant about 4 varieties of cherries. The trees should be placed according to the scheme 2.5 x 3 meters - taking into account tall trees, and if the trees are low, then according to the scheme 2.5 x 2 meters.

An exception can only be self-pollinated varieties.

The pit should be dug up to 80 centimeters in diameter, 50-60 centimeters in depth. Topsoil should be mixed with mineral fertilizers, wood ash and organic fertilizers.

Important! Nitrogen fertilizers and lime should not be applied to the planting pit in order not to disturb the root system.

In the center of the pit, you need to drive a peg around which to pour the planting mixture with a cone, then lower the seedling and straighten the crustal system. The root neck should be at ground level, it is allowed to plant 4 centimeters higher, taking into account the fact that the earth will settle. Such a procedure is necessary so that there is no rotting of the plant, since the culture does not tolerate buried plantings.

The tree trunk at the time of planting should be on the northern side of the peg vertically. Next, sprinkle the roots with soil and lightly tamp.

It is necessary to make a hole next to the seedling and pour a bucket of water into it. After that, mulch the soil of the seedling with peat or humus. Tie up the seedling to the peg.

Winter hardiness and drought resistance

One of the distinguishing features of this hybrid is its increased resistance to harsh winter conditions. The tree is able to carry up to 25 degrees of frost without damage to itself. With the same success cherry "Meeting" is experiencing a rather long drought.

Did you know?It is believed that Europe is obliged to sweet varieties of Persia cherry, and sour - Asia Minor.

Terms of ripening

The tree blooms, depending on the climate of the growing place in mid-April or in early May, the fruits ripen closer to the end of June, in the twenties.

Did you know?It is difficult to say exactly when cherries were grown and cultivated here, but it is known for certain that in the 12th century it was already practiced under Yuri Dolgoruky. Most likely, the Slavic tribes were familiar with this tree much earlier. On the pages of the well-known "Domostroi", dated XYI century, it is strongly recommended to breed cherries.


Cherries can be consumed fresh used in cooking, making winter preparations, freezing, drying - the variety is universal.

To please yourself and loved ones with useful and tasty drugs, it is useful to know how to freeze, dry, preserve cherries, prepare cherry leaves.
