So-called columnar fruit trees include also those that are compact and exhibit much reduced side growth, being rather narrowly conical rather than strictly columnar with just a central leader and numerous, short lateral branches. This holds good for most stone fruit trees such as apricots, plums, peaches, and cherries. Still, even these are called columnar in order to make their classification easier for consumers.

Sylvia® is a columnar sweet cherry of upright and narrowly conical habit. It produces large, up to 10g cherries. They are rich red and glossy with excellent, crispy, and sweet flavour. It matures late, usually in mid August.

It is self-sterile and requires a pollinator – another cherry tree to produce fruit. Pollinators must flower at the same time, and usually mature in the same period. Good pollinators are: Van, Napoleon, Kordia, Hedelfingen, Regina, or Stella.

It grows about 20-40 cm per year into a single-stem tree. Cherry trees like slightly acidic, humus rich, well drained but evenly moist soil. When the fruit is formed some extra watering is a help in dry seasons – cherry trees dislike drought. Fully hardy to min. -29°C.
