Sweet cherries - five tree forms compared

Sweet cherries - five tree forms compared

Obst und Weinbau 132(2): 36-39

The sweet cherry cultivars Kordia and Schauenburger were trained as a 3-armed fan, palmette, espalier, oval spindle or narrow spindle, starting with 2-year-old budded trees on F12/1 in autumn 1986. All except for the oval spindle were trained along a wire scaffold. For each cultivar and form, information is presented on performance for the period up to 1995. Fruit size and quality did not differ significantly between forms.
