no longer available Sour Cherry JACHIM® - Columnar Tree

Comes from Saxony and is the ideal sour cherry for the small home garden. Grows columnar (pillar type) and therefore requires little space. It is very robust and insensitive and can therefore cope with little care. It bears on one- and two-year-old wood and therefore hardly needs pruning.

Crossing: Köröser x Safir
Vigour: upright, columnar. No pruning necessary, only excess branches can be removed. Pinch the side branches regularly for a single shoot tree.
Blossom: medium late, very rich, self-fertile
Fruits: large, 6 g, flat round, dark red, resistant to cracking
Pulp: dark red, medium firm
Taste: good, balanced sweet and sour
Harvest season: mid-late, mid-July
Yield: consistently high
Special notes: Jachim was selected by Mirko Schuster as part of the sour cherry breeding program of the Julius Kühn Institute at the Dresden-Pillnitz site. In addition to fruit yield, it is characterized by its upright growth habit with ornamental value, especially in spring when it flowers.
