Kordia is a new black cherry variety, which has quickly become popular with both commercial growers and gardeners on account of the large fruit size, glossy black skin, and excellent flavour,
Kordia cherries are also resistant to the splitting caused by summer rain.
If you want a cherry that is very big, and really black, this is the one to choose!
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.
Let me know when Kordia cherry trees are back in stock.
If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Kordia is not self-fertile and therefore needs a pollination partner. Most self-fertile sweet cherry varieties will be suitable, particularly Stella and Sweetheart.
It blooms quite late but the blossom is not particularly frost-resistant, so it is best grown in a sheltered area, or at the top of a slope where frost can drain away downwards.
It has a fairly low-chill requirement of 700-750 hours, making it a useful variety for warmer climates.
Kordia is a chance seedling of unknown parentage, found near Techlovice in the Czech Republic in the 1960s. It is also known as Attika and Techlovika II.
