Does anyone have an idea of the chill requirement of the Pretty Gully cherry tree? Has anyone had a go at growing it in Sydney?

Pretty gullyu has flowered after 3 years in Mid Blue Mts. No fruit yet . sadly I think it is unlikely to fruit in Subs of sydney . Lowest chiil requirement I have seen for sweet cherry is 900 hours . richmond get around 960 hrs .

Bsilver, perhaps your tree is still establishing itself - some fruit trees take several years to produce fruit. How is your tree growing?
I thought that a cherry tree is unlikely to fruit in Sydney suburbs. But I'm not sure how low chill 'Pretty Gully' is really. This link suggests that some low chill cherries might exist:

Flemings are selling the Minnie Royal and Royal Lee varities (need both for pollination).

400 hours chilling.

Yes, at Stoneville out of 5 years you get 1 year no crop, 2 years bad crops and 2 years passable crops.

I went to the Flemings website www.flemings.com.au) and they don't show the Minnie Royal or Royal Lee Cherry varieties.

Has anyone found either, but preferably both, varieties from any nursery in Perth?

you need to look in the commercial section of the flemings web site.

Wandilla claim they have some coming in July on dwarf root stocks.

i think we need to get pretty gully, minnie royal and royal lee, let them pollinate each other.
germinate seeds and plant 100 trees out in 3 rows, close space
in a place that gets 350-400 h chill

same with apples
plant crosses of anna, gold dorset and tropic

from these populations we might get further evolution

after all the world was a much warmer place only a million years ago than it is today. 1 million years is nothing to a woody plant, there will be latent genes lurking in the populations

theres not much a carton or two cant get.

Even so all we need is the pollen
and under the PBR legislation we are full entitled to use PBR registered breeds as parents for our own breeding and have no obligations to the owner for any offspring

I admire your tenacity and resolve but it seems you'll need many years. How about just getting one of the "ROYALS" seed and taking your chances.

I understand that commercial growers have planted the Royals and ,yes,they will be named on the box. Interestingly when you look up "Pretty Gully" on the map it seems that the area would not get much chill. Ergo the tree of that name ought to be low chill.

i used to live a few km from there
you are right it doesnt get a long time of chilling
Frosts normally hit in the first week of june.
coldest driest month is August
and by the second week of september it turns warm again for a few weeks, then we get a couple more weeks cold weather
and then its Hot hot hot!

what im thinking is if you X pollinate pretty gully with the royals youd get a number of seedlings with low chill genes mixed in and hybrid vigour with all sorts of other traits.

Im more into Cheap seedlings and culling rather than coddling expensive grafted trees

Hi,
We get 90 cold nights a winter with temps to -5degrees at times. 0 degrees is common. Is there any variety of cherry I could try growing? I can shade them in summer if that helps with partial block shadecloth. Don't mind trying and failing.

The Pretty Gully cherry came from our orchard originally. We found it would fruit every two years, it was over 5 when it began to fruit however as it grew from a failed graft so was root stock (not sure which). As for chill requirements; it grew right beside an R2E2 mango. I am not sure what the chill hours are here but it is subtropical.

I gave Pretty Gully to a friend who lives at Crows Nest north of Toowoomba and it is growing very vigorously. I don't think it has flowered as yet. I have also found a variety called Country Red which is propagated in by a Toowoomba nursery I think - supposed to be self fertile and suitable for warm areas. Probably worth a go.

Quick update, the steelas all flowered this last winter. I got a small fruit set and then we had unseasonable early storms and heavy rain.
All the baby fruit dropped, same happened with our mangoes this year. Always a fight with anthrax nosenand the weather.

I have another area at the bottom of front block which is a lot colder in winter for longer. Have had it graded flat and need to fence it off and run the water line across to it. It should take 12 cherry trees and a few date palms to fill it. Well that is my plan neways :)
Just wish i could get blue berries to grow without a drama, lol :(
