Cherries Orchard

The story of this cherry orchard began with a beautiful spring day in the early ’70s between Mario Cascianelli and his agronomist friend. Mario did not know how to use that part of the hill so dry and impervious so he asked his friend for an advice. But while the two were talking, just looking at the landscape in front of them, they noticed as the whole mountain was painted white. They were flowers, a great flowering of wild cherry trees; since that day it became the hill of the cherry trees. The plant covers an overall zone of ā€‹ā€‹about 1 ha in 2 distinct areas, on loose soils dedicated to the cultivation of these small fruits; includes a collection of cherries, with a multitude of almost known cultivars. The cultivated varieties are mainly “duroni” from Vignola, with various ripening maturations, “Ferrovia”, “cornette”, “tenerine” and “bianca”; Those trees are grown using organic method, with small amounts of organic fertilizers and using only natural fungicides.
