Durone without fruits: Answer: the cultivation of cherry


Dear Vincenzo,
generally when we buy a fruit plant, the nurseryman tells us that in a short time, and without any cultivation cure, we will find ourselves with huge fruit baskets; essentially the nurseryman tells the truth, because fruit trees are resistant and vigorous, and generally, even without any care, they tend to bear fruit. The cherry tree is certainly one of the fruit plants that can create more problems, in unsuitable climatic or cultivation conditions, even if it blooms, an adult cherry tree may not bring even a single fruit to maturity. In your case, this is certainly not the age of the plant, as 10 years is more than enough for a cherry tree to begin to bear fruit (usually 4-5 years, except for particular varieties that need a few more years of development). ). The fall of the cherry fruits is not an event due to ominous force, because it is normal for a plant that has produced a large number of fruits to lose some (even a high percentage), in order to be able to bring at least those that remain on the plant. The strange fact is of course that your cherry loses all its fruit; surely to counteract this event there are useful fertilizations with potassium-rich fertilizers, to be supplied in autumn or winter; it is usually granular fertilizers, which you simply need to spread around the stem, checking the right amount of product to use on the label. In fact, a good fertilizer allows the plant to ripen a greater number of fruits. In your case, however, it could also be a bad case of monilia: it is a fungus, which often hibernates on the bark of the plant that will infest in the spring; this fungus can affect leaves, flowers or even ripe fruits; often though it prefers to develop inside the fruits, when they are still green; the fruits fail to mature and fall; Some monilia products exist on the market, which are generally used when the plant has only the buds, as a prevention against this very harmful pest, whose development is favored by a cold and damp climate during the fruiting period.
