Cherries

Cherries Two main types of cherries are produced in the United States: sweet cherries and tart or “sour” cherries, the latter being used primarily for processing. Sweet cherries are produced mainly in the Pacific Northwest and California while Michigan is the leader in tart cherry production. New York grows just less than 900 acres of cherries, 150 of which are located in eastern NY. The United States is the third-largest producer of cherries in the world. The European Union-27 is the leading cherry producer, followed by Turkey.

Cherry consumption has always been good but recent information about the antioxidant health benefits has improved domestic consumption. Per person consumption is approximately 2 pounds per year.

Over the last 20 years, Cornell research and extension projects have helped growers increase yields and fruit quality by increasing tree densities and improving labor efficiency. We estimate that profitability of new high density orchards is 100 to 300% greater than the traditional low-density orchards.

Resources from CCE ENYCHP!

We are developing new ways to connect with the CCE ENYCHP team this year! We have a Youtube page located at this link. Check out videos on Table Grape Production, Pest Updates and the 20 Minute Ag Manager - in 4 Minutes series

We have a Facebook Page here as well as an Instagram page. We keep these places updated with current projects, events, and other interesting articles and deadlines.

There are also text alerts available. Fruit and vegetable farmers in 17 Eastern NY counties can now receive real time alerts on high risk disease and pest outbreaks texted directly to their cell phone. The Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture program, which is supported by local Cornell Cooperative Extension associations, will now offer text alerts to those that enroll in our program in 2019. 

The text alerts will be reserved for important crop alerts that could impact management decisions immediately. For instance, if there were an outbreak of Late Blight in the area, this would be transmitted to vegetable growers.

Farmers can choose the crop for which they wish to receive updates. Additionally they can request that Ag Business Alerts be sent to them. These alerts might include due dates for crop insurance deadlines, market opportunities etc.

If you have questions, please contact enychp@cornell.edu
