Ciliegia della valle dell'Irno
(Cherry of the Voile of Irno)


Bracigliano and Siano, together with a small group of other communes in the Voile dell’Irno (the piedmont area in the province of Salerno to the north of the main  town) still base part of their economy on cherry farming.
Local cherry farming combines the production of fruit with naturalistic value and a beautiful landscape, as well as hydrogeological protection, and has always focused on the typical character of the produce and preservation of the original genetic heritage.

Cherry of the Voile of Irno - Typical products - Sorrento Italy


Among the main autochthonous cultivars are the Sciazza and Spernocchie (I and II), which are grown almost exclusively within this limited production area and characterised by high productivity and a particularly marketable fruit.
The blossoming period is at the end of March and beginning of April, whereas the fruit ripens medium-early, in the second half of May for the Sciazza variety and a few weeks later for the Spernocchie variety. The fruit is medium-sized, dark red and shiny with a very firm, compact and crisp flesh, a pleasant bitter-sweet taste and resists well to handling. This latter characteristic makes it ideal for refrigeration, processing and sale in areas far from the production area. Another typical variety in this area is the Pagliaccio, which is distinguished by its excellent organoleptic character.
The trees are mostly cultivated in the traditional vase-shaped way. The cherries are picked by hand, using ladders, are put into crates with holes, in batches of about 25 kg, and transported to processing centres or sales outlets, mainly on the regional market.
