Abstract:
The soil, climatic and topographical conditions in some regions of Bulgaria are favourable for sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.) growing and production of high quality fruit. In Bulgaria, the area planted to cherry orchards had been increasing constantly up to 1990, when it reached 11,004 ha, but recently it has decreased considerably and now there are about 7,000 ha. One of the reasons for this reduction is land reform and changing ownership of the land. This paper reviews the climatic conditions, regions, cultivars, rootstocks, planting distances, training systems, soil management and plant protection of cherry production in Bulgaria. The cultivars and rootstocks created at the Institute of Agriculture, Kyustendil, also are presented.
