Cherry Revna: variety description, photos and crop care

cherry grade Revna Thanks to breeders, the cultivation zone for southern heat-loving crops has expanded significantly, including areas of the center of Russia and the Central Black Earth region. The result of the work of the scientists of the Lupin Research Institute was the Revna cherry. Description of the variety, photo of fruiting and reviews of gardeners prove its value.

Bryansk, where the All-Russian Research Institute of Lupin is located, cannot be attributed to the places of traditional cultivation of cherries. And, nevertheless, local gardeners, as well as summer residents in the Moscow region and other regions of central Russia, have the opportunity to annually enjoy the sweetness of juicy fruits from their site..

The breeders used seedlings of the variety Bryanskaya rozovaya, which they bred as a starting material for obtaining cherries of the Revna variety. During the tests of the new variety, it has confirmed excellent frost resistance, the quality of the harvested crop and resistance to common diseases of stone fruit crops. The variety was included in the State Register for the Central Region in 1994.

Features of cherries of the Revna variety

planting cherries in the country If properly planted and cared for, the Revna cherry grows quickly, and in 4–5 years the tree forms a crown of medium density and height. Due to the skeletal branches extending from the trunk at a large angle, the plant is strong enough to withstand abundant fruiting, which begins just at the age of 5.

The crown of a wide pyramidal shape allows free penetration of light and air into the interior, thereby helping the tree to resist damage by mold and pests.

In spring, the shoots of a cherry tree are covered with large, ovoid leaves with pointed tips, a rounded base and strongly serrated, double-serrate edges. On the leathery dark green surface, relief veins are visible, turning into a dense, short petiole. He, like young shoots, is almost completely colored in brownish-green tones..

cherry blossoms RevnaThe cherry variety Revna is characterized by late flowering. Up to 80% of the collected 4–5 flowers are revealed on bouquet branches. Corollas with white petals have a wide-open, saucer-like shape. A pistil surrounded by stamens is clearly visible in the center. Due to excellent winter hardiness in the harsh winters of the Central region, cherries are slightly damaged.

The hardened trunk, skeletal branches and buds are not afraid of sunburn. However, with spring frost, up to 17% of growth buds and about 70% of flower buds can suffer.

Fruiting and pollinators for cherries Revna

cherry ripening timeIf a tree has been properly pruned by the age of 4–5, it blooms and forms an ovary for the first time. According to the description and photo, the Revna cherry variety belongs to medium late. Fruits weighing from 4.5 to 8 grams are kept on the branches with the help of strong short stalks. Among similar varieties, the sweet cherries of the Bryansk variety are distinguished by a wide rounded shape, a noticeable funnel, a rounded top and a dark, almost black skin. On the cut, the cherry reveals a dense, rich red pulp filled with thick juice.

An oval bone of a milky beige shade makes up only 5% of the mass of a ripe fruit. It is not at all difficult to separate it from the pulp, which is extremely important not only when eating fresh cherries, but when making jams, compotes and other types of preservation. According to the expert council and a photo of the Revna cherry, its fruits have an attractive appearance and excellent taste, which deserves an assessment of 4.9 points..

Unlike many other varieties that quickly deteriorate, due to the dense pulp, the Revna cherry can be well stored and transported.

juicy sweet fruitsFor a thermophilic culture, accustomed to longer and hotter summers, the Revna cherry variety shows high quality sweet fruits. In successful years, 100 grams of pulp account for:

  • 12.6 grams of sugars;
  • 18.8 grams of non-palatable fiber;
  • only 0.3 grams of organic acids, of which ascorbic acid accounts for 13 mg.

Features of planting and caring for cherries Revna

For sweet and juicy cherries, they need sun and moisture. It is necessary to plant fruit trees in an elevated, closed from cold winds, but sunny place, and before ripening the garden must be watered.

protection of fruits from birdsAs can be seen from the description and photo of the Revna cherry, the variety is characterized by increased winter hardiness and without serious losses it survives the cold season, in the fall, before the onset of stable frosts, you need to take care of the protection of the boles. For this:

  • planting must be watered;
  • fallen leaves and debris are removed from the trunks;
  • the lower part of the trunk is wrapped in non-woven material, cardboard or densely covered with coniferous branches.

In summer, when the ovary is filled with juice and is already colored, it is useful to hide the crown from uninvited guests, including sparrows and starlings, who willingly eat sweet treats.

The healthy and tasty fruits of sweet cherries will appeal to both adults and little gourmets. However, a bountiful harvest can only be expected when varieties are planted nearby for cross-pollination. Among the pollinators for cherries Revna, experts in agricultural technology call the cherry variety Compact and Velyaminova, bred by the Bryansk breeders Iput, and also adapted to the temperate climate Ovstuzhenka and Tyutchevka.

If you do not take care of the useful neighborhood in time, the cherry orchard will give no more than 5% of the possible harvest.

Regular treatment of trees from pests will help increase the efficiency of the garden. Despite the resistance of the variety to most diseases, the trees will not be prevented by preventive spraying, as well as sanitary pruning..
