Rain-induced cracking severely limits production of many soft-textured, drupe, and berry fruits. Sweet cherry is a prominent example of the former ( Christensen, 1996 ). Cracking is commonly assumed to result from increased fruit turgor, caused by

; Teng et al., 2001 , 2002 ; Wünsche et al., 2005 ). In sweet cherry, reproductive and vegetative growth occurs simultaneously during spring and early summer ( Roper et al., 1987 ). FS and NFS leaf area (LA) is derived from preformed vegetative

The harvest process for most fresh-market tree fruit crops is labor-intensive and time-consuming. For sweet cherry ( Prunus avium L.), harvest costs generally account for 50% to 60% of total production costs ( Seavert et al., 2008 ), yet despite

Rain cracking is a problem for sweet cherry production in all countries where this very high-value crop is grown ( Christensen, 1996 ). Despite considerable research effort the mechanistic basis of the phenomenon is still poorly understood. The

Low-temperature injury to sweet cherry fruit buds during bloom can significantly reduce production. Careful site selection to avoid spring frosts is an important consideration when planting new sweet cherry orchards ( Longstroth and Perry, 1996

Rain-cracking severely limits sweet cherry production worldwide ( Christensen, 1996 ). By breaching fruit skin integrity, it exposes the underlying flesh to rapid drying and to invasion by insects and pathogens. Cracking is thought to be related to

Sweet cherry ( Prunus avium ) production is increasing in many areas in both the Northern (United States, Italy, Spain, Hungary, and Turkey) and Southern (Chile, Australia) hemispheres. Sweet cherry production has advanced in the last decade as a

An international breeding program has an ongoing requirement to reliably identify their cultivars to maintain correct material during propagation and for enforcement of plant breeders’ rights. The sweet cherry breeding program from the Summerland

Sweet cherry fruit growth follows a double sigmoid growth pattern, which is characterized by rapid increases of fruit mass and surface area during Stages I and III of development with much reduced expansion during the intermediate Stage II
