Natural and climatic conditions in our country are suitable for expanding sweet cherry plantations. For the investigated period (2001-2017) the areas with sweet cherry plantations decreased from 9,704 ha in 2001 to 4,411 ha in 2008 and in 2017 increased to 8,989 ha. The production of sweet cherry fruit also decreased from 28,487 t in 2001 to 14,830 t in 2010, then in 2017 increased to 48,391 t. Average cherry yields recorded are strong below the biological capabilities of sweet cherry varieties and range from 2,936 kg/ha in 2001 to 5,383 kg/ha in 2017. The recent trend in planting high productive varieties using advanced technology for sweet cherry fruit production, leads to higher yields and better quality of fruits.
