Abstract or Summary
  • Tree vigor is important because more leaves mean more carbohydrate production and larger cherries. The production of high-quality cherries requires a gross canopy leaf area-to-fruit ratio of at least 200 cm2 of leaf area per fruit, which roughly translates to five leaves per fruit. Trees with a lower LA:F ratio are unable to manufacture enough carbohydrates to produce premium cherries. Pruning strategies for trees on productive rootstocks should focus on the following: • Thinning cuts to remove pendant (downward hanging) and weak wood and to improve light penetration into the tree • Stub cuts to reduce crop load and renew spurs • Heading cuts to encourage branching (leaf production) and reduce crop load
