Cherries are one of the most frequently consumed seasonal fruits. They appear on stalls already in June, but the best taste is those that we grow ourselves in the garden. However, it sometimes happens that the fruit on the tree begins to crack and deteriorate. How to prevent this?

Many beginner gardeners wonder how to grow to harvest baskets of healthy fruit. Unfortunately, red balls tend to burst, which causes them to rot and become unsuitable for consumption. What to do to prevent damage?

Why do cherries burst? It’s all due to… excess water

The bursting of cherries is caused by the weather, because in summer we often experience temperature changes. Heat and drought, followed by heavy rains and cooling, make the thin skin unable to withstand changes in pressure and excess water. it swells and increases in volume, and as a result, it is damaged.

If we want to plant cherries in the garden, it is worth choosing more resistant varieties such as Uster, Vera, Regina, Sylvia or Lapins. However, if we have a tree that is several years old, saturating irrigation is a good solution. Then the consequences of rainfall will not be so severe for the fruit.

ADVICE! You should monitor the weather, and if heavy downpours are predicted, water the tree so that the soil is at least 30 cm irrigated.

Cracking cherries are a common problem, but fortunately there are ways to prevent it.

  • After rain, shake off the water from the branches and crown of the tree. The treatment should be repeated after each downpour. This way we will reduce the risk of cracking the cherries.
  • Calcium spray. It will strengthen the fruit skin and make the walls more resistant to micro-damage. It is best to spray every week or two weeks to provide adequate protection for our harvests.
