Sweet and sour cherries (Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus) are important fruit crops for which demand is high and growing. A significant number of new varieties, rootstocks, and training systems have been released or developed in recent years in order to improve the efficiency and profitability of cherry orchards.

Cherries: Botany, Production and Uses covers the genetics, ecophysiology, production, protection, and uses of cherries. Presenting up-to-date, scientific data and applied information, this book is invaluable for researchers, teachers, and all professionals working in the cherries value chain.
