Title: Evaluation of Some New York Sweet Cherry Selections in Romania
Authors: S. Budan, A. Iezzoni and R.L. Andersen
Six sweet cherry cultivars and 16 numbered selections from the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station were evaluated for bloom and maturity dates, tree yield and trunk circumference in an orchard planted in 1977 at The Fruit Research Institute in Pitesti-Maracineni, Romania. The latest blooming selections were NY 9801 and 'Vogue.' Harvest maturity spanned approximately 11 days, 'yan' was the highest yielding cultivar and only 'Vogue,' 'Kristin,' NY 7690 and NY 6476 had mean average yields similar to 'Van.' NY 7690 was the only high yielding New York selection with a comparably small trunk circumference to be considered as a potential commercial cultivar in Romania.
