Written by Simeon KRUMOV, Nicolai CHRISTOV

It was performed a research on the resistance of sweet cherry fruits to mechanical pressure and detachment force from their fruits stem for the cultivars 'Merchant’, 'Pobeda Кrimska’, 'Summit’, 'Vanda’, 'Stella’, 'Sunburst’, 'Rainier’, 'Bing’, 'Mizia’, 'Kozerska’, 'Vasinika’, 'Alexton’ and control cultivar ʻVanʼ. The survey was conducted during harvesting maturity of the fruits. These indicators characterize the transportability of the sweet cherry fruits and suitability of the cultivars for mechanized harvesting. The results show that the fruits of all investigated cultivars had from „good“ to „very good“ transportability, with the exception of 'Pobeda Кrimska’ and 'Sunburst’. The cultivar 'Vasinika’, created at the Institute of Agriculture - Kyustendil, Bulgaria stands out with easily removable fruits, without leakage of juice. This cultivar was the most suitable for mechanized harvesting from all investigated cultivars.
