La Ciliegina - our cherry orchard
Cultivation of the cherries takes place in the orchards using the intensive and progressive Drapeau cultivation system. Modified by Swiss Beat Lehner, this French cultivation system stipulates that the cherry trees are planted at a slope of 45°. The distance between the plants in the rows is 2 metres, the rows run parallel to each other at a distance of 3.8 metres. This system has the advantage that these cherry trees with strong growth can reach up to eight metres.
