Cherry tree ‘Kordia‘ - Bare-rooted - TreePrunus avium 'Kordia'
Shiny cherries from our own soil
Shiny, dark red cherries. That's what this cherry tree ‘Kordia‘ produces. The cherries from the ‘Kordia‘ are firm and sweet. The cherry tree is self-pollinating. The tree itself looks elegant too, with large white flowers that bloom in spring. We plant the cherry tree in the garden or in pots on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. We supply the cherry tree ‘Kordia‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical. The fruit tree blossoms in spring. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. After harvesting, we prune the branches that have borne fruit. The cherry tree grows in moisture-retaining soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.Show more
