A bushy shrub up to 20ft. So-ri hasoften form small multi-trunked trees. Trees without adequate pollination can set seedless fruit. Flowers usually appear after periods of rainfall or irrigation. Flowering may occur any time during the year (depending on local rainfall and climate patterns), and can last year-round.
After flower set, fruit soon follows and will ripen in just 3-4 weeks.
Fruits lose their flavor and nutritional content very rapidly upon harvest. Ripe cherry”s should be picked and eaten within a few hours to preserve taste. As a result, the tree is not cultivated for commercial production of fresh fruits.
