Cornelian cherry varieties
Cornelian Cherry(Cornus Mas) as one of the few fruit plants is characterized by a high longevity. You can find plants 100-200 years old that still have a lot of fruit. Once planted in one place, it brings income for several generations.
Cornelian is undemanding in the soil, but does not tolerate wet, acidic and salty soils, grows best and bears fruit on fertile, well-drained, neutral and alkaline (pH 7-8) soils with a high calcium content. Strongly acidified soils can be deacidified the quickest with garden chalk, which works immediately after use. Dolomite can be used for continuous calcium supplementation, which additionally enriches the soil with magnesium.
Healthy plants do not require any special care. Do not dig up the soil in the crown as this can damage the shallow root dogwood system. During the growing season, irrigation is necessary in the dormant phase, since the quality and quantity of the harvest is completely dependent on the presence of moisture. If it does not rain during the ripening period of the fruits and the flower buds are set up for the next year, then a large harvest cannot be expected for the next season. Cornelian needs about 750 mm of rainfall per year, with the greatest need being in summer. On plantations, especially in the first few years after the establishment, it is recommended to set up irrigation that significantly accelerates the growth of the seedlings and thus achieves the assumed yield .
Cornelian is naturally found as undergrowth in forests, so young plants prefer light shading. However, for abundant fruiting and better coloring of the fruits, it is recommended that the plants be planted in full sun. This sensitivity of young plants to strong sunlight results from the sensitivity of shallow roots to overheating. It is therefore worthwhile to mulch the plants before they shade the ground itself with mown grass, bark, straw, composted softwood sawdust or fleece. In addition, this will limit the development of weeds.
It is worth doing a soil analysis before planting and preparing the soil by adjusting it to the appropriate pH, adding the missing micro- and macro-elements, and adding humus by fertilizing or sowing catch crops. When planting plants, do not fill the wells with manure, as it can damage the roots. If the soil is poor, the wells can be treated with garden soil, for example. Cornelkish is sensitive to chloride and does not like excessive fertilization. Therefore, calcium and chloride-free multi-component fertilizers should be used, preferably in several smaller doses. Cornelian reacts very well to cross-fertilized manure, especially from horses or sheep, which should be spread under the plant in the fall or spring, but not touching the trunk.
The distance between plants depends on the planned harvesting method, the soil fertility or the forming method. Usually the plants are planted in rows every 4-5 meters. The minimum distance in a row is 2 to 2.5 m. The more densely the plants are planted, the higher the yield per unit area in the first few years.
We plant the cuttings so that the grafting point is above the ground. All offshoots below the vaccination site should be removed. It is believed that cornelk does not require maintenance and is only cut hygienically. On plantations, however, it is worthwhile to operate plants in semi-foam form, with the branch height 50-70 remaining free from branches and, when using shakers, up to 1 m. Even with manual picking, the higher branches make it easier to place the mats / nets for fruit collection. According to prof. Klimienko plants should be cut into shoots, which increases the weight of the fruit. It is best to prune the plants in early August / September or in February before it start sap.
Cornelian doesn't like transplanting, especially older plants. Therefore, planting 2-3 year old and older plants with a bare root can be expected to restrict growth in the first year and increase susceptibility to fungal diseases. In the case of plants planted from pots, these problems usually do not exist and even smaller plants are able to catch / hunt those dug out of the ground. When transplanting Cornelian, it is worth working it with the soil, since there are symbiotic cultures on its roots, the absence of which can lead to reduced fruiting and growth.
