Cherry Griotella is a self fertile variety. 

Griotella is grown on the Colt rootstock but grows to only 2m tall. Good for difficult soil and for growing in containers.

 

DWARF FRUIT TREES

SOIL

Prefers well drained fertile soil.

PLANTING SITE 

Sunny, sheltered and frost free position is best. Plant 2m apart from other dwarf stonefruit trees.

WATERING

Water well during the early stages, during long dry periods and when the fruit is developing.

CLIMATE

Best in areas with some Winter chill and protected from hard Spring frosts.

GENERAL CARE 

Thin out leaves and fruit to allow good air movement and light penetration.

PESTS & DISEASES

In areas with wet Springs and hot humid weather a preventative spray program is recommended. Copper sprays at leaf drop and again twice in early Spring as buds swell will help prevent Leaf Curl.

Great in containers and as focal points in gardens and entrys.
