Cherry is an edible Fruit belonging to the genus Prunes, in the family of Rose. They belong to the category of small Stone Fruits with different flavors and color depends on the type. The two main types are Sour Cherry and Sweet Cherry. The first type of Cherries is used in commercial products while the Sweet Cherries are consuming mostly as fresh.
Spring and Summer Rain will bring Cherry Fruit cracking. This usually makes them unsaleable. This happens when Cherry Fruits will reach the ripening stage and you can see free water in the Fruits. Raining for several days will bring fractures on the outer part of the Fruit. The problem can get even worse if the cracking goes deeper on the Fruit flesh. Fruit splitting will eventually happen if the Rain does not stop for a long time.
In the Cherry Orchards, one of the biggest problems Farmers face is the cracking of fully ripen Fruits. The Cherry Rain Protection System will protect your Orchard from Fruit damages caused by Rain. This System will save your Fruits from losing their commercial value.
