Growing and Training

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.
