A few words about the Samba variety
Samba is a cherry variety that is harvested in the mid-early season and is a “safe- solution” for the producers.
As a tree, it has strong-vigorous growth and semi-erect behavior.
Its main advantage is its resistance to cracking due to heavy rainfall. In many cases, as well as in our own cherry farm, Samba was able to maintain a high percentage of good fruits despite heavy and long duration rainfalls.
One more important advantage is fruit size which never disappoints the producer, especially now that the market is demanding high-quality products. It can be harvested from red skin color until dark red-black while maintaining firm flesh. Its tase is very satisfactory and it can be stored in cold storage facilities for a long time.
Its production volume is large as long as there are pollinators planted together with the main variety. Samba shows better results when grafted in Gizela-6 and Maxma-14 rootstocks.
Attention! there is another variety with a similar name “Sun Burst” which has nothing similar to Samba.
