Regina - high quality European cherry

Regina - high quality European cherry

Regina is a German late cherry variety known from the middle of the last century. Until now, it is grown commercially in Europe. Russian gardeners and farmers also show interest in this variety, but attempts to grow it do not always end well.

Description of the variety of cherries Regina

The popular European cherry variety Regina is not in the State Register of Russia, but this does not stop enthusiasts who take up growing it (not always successfully) on their plots. The variety was bred by German breeders in 1957 by crossing Rubet and Schneider late cherries. Due to its many advantages, it began to be used for industrial cultivation, and for 25 years Regina's seedlings were prohibited from exporting outside the country. Since 1981, this sweet cherry has been massively grown throughout Western Europe.

Cherry Regina ripens in the second half of July

Regina's tree grows up to 3-4 m in height, has a pronounced central conductor with skeletal branches extending almost at right angles. Crohn round-pyramidal medium density. Regina blooms late - in the second half of May, which protects the flowers from recurrent frosts. High frost resistance of wood - wood can withstand frosts down to -25 ° C. The variety has a high immunity to all fungal and viral diseases, as well as pests. Roots going to great depths will always find water, so Regina is not afraid of droughts. Only in extreme heat does it need watering.

Begins fruiting 3-4 years after planting. The yield is regular and high. On average, each tree at the age of 6 years yields 40 kg of berries... The Regina cherry ripens in the second half of July. The fruits hang on the branches for a long time. At the same time, they do not crumble and never crack. Separation from the stalk is dry.

The berries are large (weighing an average of 9-10 g), slightly elongated heart-shaped. The color of the smooth and shiny skin is dark red. Elastic and cartilaginous flesh also has a red color, and its taste is sweet, slightly sour, rich. Tasting taste assessment - 4.8-5 points. According to its characteristics, the variety belongs to the bigarro group. Berries are stored for up to 3 weeks without loss of quality, have high transportability... The purpose is universal.

Cherry varieties are divided into two groups - bigarro and gini. The former have dense cartilaginous flesh, which ensures their good transportability and high quality canned products. As a rule, these are varieties with medium and late ripening periods. The varieties of the gini group are often early, have a thin skin and juicy flesh. They are used fresh, since they do not keep the form in canned food.

The main types of pollinators

Regina's main problem is her self-infertility and capriciousness towards pollinators. Many gardeners were faced with a situation where the Regina cherry did not bear fruit for many years, although there were cherries of other varieties nearby, blooming with her at the same time. To date, a list of suitable cherry varieties for pollination has been established, however, none of them is registered in the State Register:

  • Summit;
  • Sam;
  • Silvia;
  • Cordia;
  • Karina;
  • Gedefinger;
  • Bianca;
  • Schneiger late.

Can also be cherry pollinators:

  • Jade;
  • Coral;
  • Lotivka.

Moreover, experts advise having not one, but two different varieties for pollination of Regina. Only in this case 100% pollination and a high yield are guaranteed.

Advantages and disadvantages of the variety

Advantages of the variety:

  • Unpretentious care.
  • Early maturity.
  • Increased frost resistance.
  • Drought resistance.
  • Immunity to diseases and pests.

Planting cherries

Even a gardener with little experience should not have any difficulties with planting Regina. Step by step description:

  1. First of all, you need to decide on the planting site of the seedling. It must meet the following requirements:
    • Good illumination. Slight partial shade is possible but not desirable.
    • The occurrence of groundwater should be at least 2.5 m.
    • A slight slope of the site in the southern or southwestern direction is desirable - it will ensure the drainage of melt and rainwater and, as a result, the absence of swampiness.
    • The soil should be loose and well-permeable - light sandy loam and loam will be the best option.
    • The presence of natural protection from cold northerly winds in the form of a fence, dense trees, building walls, etc. is welcomed.
  2. Then they choose the timing of planting - in regions with a cold climate, early spring is considered the best time, when the buds are ready to wake up. In the southern regions, it is better to plan the planting in late autumn. The plants should already go dormant and shed their foliage, but there should still be about a month before the onset of frost. Seedlings with a closed root system can be planted at any time - from March to October.

    Closed-root plants can be planted anytime from March to October

  3. In the fall, seedlings are purchased, and in the case of spring planting, they are laid for storage in the basement or buried in the garden.
  4. A planting pit is prepared 2-3 weeks before the planned planting time (if it is planned to plant cherries in the spring, then it is advisable to prepare the pit in the fall). The size of the pit is made equal to 0.8 m in depth and diameter, and its entire volume is filled with nutritious soil (it is prepared by mixing black soil, peat, humus and river sand in equal amounts).
  5. On the day of planting, the roots of the seedlings should be soaked in water (it is advisable to add drugs that stimulate root formation to the water, for example, Heteroauxin, Zircon, Kornevin, etc.) for 2-4 hours.
  6. In the middle of the hole, a hole is prepared in a size sufficient to accommodate the roots of the seedling in it. A small conical mound is formed in the hole.
  7. A seedling is lowered into the pit, placing its root collar on the top of the cone, after which the roots are evenly covered with soil, tamping it layer by layer. In this case, you need to ensure that the root collar ends up at ground level - this is conveniently done using a bar or rail.

    It is convenient to control the position of the root collar of the seedling using a bar or plank

  8. After that, an earthen roller is raked along the diameter of the planting pit, forming a near-trunk circle.
  9. Water the seedling abundantly with 3-4 buckets of water.

    To water the seedling, you will need 3-4 buckets of water

  10. After 2-3 days, the soil is loosened and mulched with humus, peat, hay, rotted sawdust, etc.
  11. The first formative pruning is carried out - for this, the central conductor is shortened to a height of 0.8-1.2 m, and if there are branches, then they are cut by 40-50%.

If not one tree is planted, but a group, then the plants in a row are placed at a distance of 2.5-3 m, and the row spacing is made equal to 4 m.

Features of growing and subtleties of care

Regina is unpretentious in care and does not need any specific procedures. The usual set is quite enough:

  • Watering (rather rare - enough 3-4 per season, but plentiful).
  • Top dressing (according to the usual rules for the culture).
  • Trims (the crown is formed according to a sparse-tiered scheme, the rest of the trimmings are standard).

Diseases and pests: prevention and control

Since the variety is highly immune, to prevent possible problems, conventional preventive measures without the use of chemical plant protection agents are quite enough:

  • Collection and removal of fallen leaves from the site.
  • Digging the soil of near-trunk circles in late autumn.
  • Lime whitewashing of trunks and skeletal branches.

    Lime whitewashing of trunks and skeletal branches is a mandatory item of preventive measures.

  • Sanitary pruning.
  • Installation of trapping belts.

It is possible (but not necessary) for prophylactic purposes to apply treatment with biological preparations for diseases (for example, Fitosporin-M) and pests (Fitoverm, Iskra-Bio), guided by the attached instructions. Chemicals are resorted to only in cases of infection with a disease or when attacked by a pest.

Gardeners reviews

Regina is an underestimated late cherry variety in Russia. It has high commercial qualities of fruits and is interesting for industrial cultivation. It is good to have it on your personal plot too - you can enjoy ripe berries for a long time. But you have to take care of the availability of suitable pollinators - their seedlings are usually found in the range of nurseries that grow Regina.

To get a bountiful harvest, it is necessary to choose varieties taking into account the peculiarities of the climate in a particular region. So, frost-resistant varieties are suitable for central Russia, and more thermophilic plants can be grown in Ukraine.

Unlike cherry, sweet cherry ripens much earlier, its tasty and aromatic fruits can already be enjoyed in early summer - June. It is a real source of useful trace elements (iron, iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium) The fruits of the plant grow in the form of a single-celled drupe with a juicy pericarp.

Taking into account the late period of emergence of cherry fruit buds from the state of forced dormancy, the yield of this crop is characterized as stable. Another advantage of cherries is the presence of reliable protection from return frosts in anthers and pistils, which is not the case with cherries.

The leaves of the fruit crop are very large in size, they are distinguished by an elongated-oval or elongated-obovate shape and brown glands on the petioles.

It is not so often possible to find self-fertile varieties on the market. They can be purchased by order from abroad. Among the popular hybrid forms, there are: Alex, Peter, Stella, Sandor, Sweet Hart.

Our cherries are not planted, but my neighbors at the dacha grow and bear fruit abundantly with the Leningradskaya Early Cherry variety. I'll tell you. what compared to cherries. the tree is very large. Every year they harvest a good harvest, it is enough for them and for us to eat plenty of compotes and prepare compotes for future use.

From this list they tried to grow Chkalov and Regina. Chkalov was, in principle, the first cherries that they took up. We stopped at it, tk. a very popular, long-established variety. What can I say. The harvest is not bad, the variety practically does not shrink, but the tree is simply huge. Especially compared to the cherries we are used to. And the shadow from him, accordingly, is strong. If a large area is allocated for the garden, you can choose Chkalov, but if 6 acres, you will break your head, what to do with it.
We also tried Regina. Here, of course, the tree is smaller, but still powerful. There are many berries (at least we had), but, alas, sour ones are often found. Considering that they ripen late in the day, they did not see any particular advantages over cherries.
Now we are growing columnar cherries - to eat in the summer. Three small trees are enough for us, they do not shade anything, the berries are large, sweet, good. And we grow cherries for workpieces as before.

For a long time I wanted to plant cherries in my garden and now I finally got a sweet cherry seedling, but unfortunately I can't remember the name of the variety. It is a pity that I did not read this article before buying cherries, because each variety is different in its own way. The most offensive thing is that when I planted a young tree last year, for some reason it disappeared. I thought I would have to buy everything new, but in the spring it made me happy and began to sprout a new sprout from the ground. I think not all is lost, perhaps it will please me someday with a harvest. I really liked the large-fruited cherry variety, I think next year I will plant it again, got acquainted with its characteristics and found what I needed. I could not even think that there are varieties that need pollination, I think it is much more difficult with them. I like cherries more than cherries, so one more will not be superfluous.
After all, it is very tasty, sweet and even a good compote will turn out from it. The main thing is to plant it correctly and provide good care so that the tree brings a good harvest.

I have been growing on the site for about 10 years now, and every year Rania Rosova pleases with its fruits. Indeed, the tree grows large, up to 5 meters, does not require additional pollination, which is a big plus for me, and gives a good harvest of cherries already in late May-early June. The cherry itself is crispy and juicy, but a little sour, so you can't eat a lot of it at one time, oskom may appear on your teeth. I also tried to plant other varieties - Revna and Large-fruited, but somehow without much success, either they do not take root, or they do not give any harvest. Perhaps the matter is in improper pollination, I am not special in this, but I try very hard. Here I also look at the Bull's Heart, the taste is simply magnificent cherry, and the frost resistance is good, plus they say it gives a good harvest. I hope it takes root, but no, so Ranyaya Pink will continue to delight me, although, unfortunately, it deteriorates quite quickly if the crop is not harvested in time.

MARI A, Are there other cherries in the neighboring plots?

Gardeners reviews

Regina is relatively adaptive, she has something wrong with pollination, it can be either from fogs, or from drought .. I don't remember, but the variety is wonderful in terms of quality.


I have Regina (from two places) - she is not so late (this year on June 27), the taste and weight of the berry is poor. The only plus, in my opinion, is resistance to cracking.


For several years of growing Regina, I can only "present" to her poor pollination. Therefore, those who plan to receive full-fledged harvests should pay special attention to this issue.


Having shown unpretentiousness in the care process and stable yield, Regina cherry has become popular not only in private gardens. The variety attracted the interest of farmers, showing excellent fruit properties - large size, good transportability and storage. And the hostesses liked the variety due to its taste and aroma.
