Abstract: `Korvik` is a new and distinct cherry variety (Prunus avium) notable for its round shape and resistance to cracking. `Korvik` is further notable for its productivity on dwarfing rootstocks, and tolerance to Monilia disease ("brown rot").
Claim: I claim:

1. A new and distinct cherry tree substantially as shown and described herein.
Description: Latin name of the genus and species of theplant claimed: Prunus avium.

Variety denomination: `Korvik`.




`Korvik` originated in 1973 as a result of a controlled cross of `Kordia` (female parent) and `Vic` (male parent) cherry trees. Asexual propagation by budding was first carried out in 1975 in East Bohemia, Czech Republic. The variety has sincebeen observed over a number of asexually propagated generations, and has been found to remain true to type.

`Korvik` is a new and distinct cherry variety notable for its round shape and resistance to cracking. `Korvik` is further notable for its productivity on dwarfing rootstocks, and tolerance to Monilia disease ("brown rot"). `Korvik` is moreupright than its parent `Kordia` which is more spreading and has less number of lenticels on the tree stem than its parent `Vic`. The duration of the flowering of `Korvic` is 1-2 days longer than its parent `Vic`. In addition, `Korvik` differs fromparental varieties by leaf shape. The leaf margin of `Korvik` is obtuse serrate, whereas the leaf margin of its parent, `Kordia`, is acute serrate.
