Somei Village planters

Somei village

Someiyoshino had started marketing as a beautiful cherry blossom by the planters of Somei Village in Edo (present-day Tokyo) at the end of the Edo period( 1603-1868).

Someiyoshino has no fruit

Cherry fruits

To begin with, Someiyoshino is a hybrid of Edohigan and Oshima cherry trees.

In other words, it is a type of cherry tree that does not exist in nature.

They do not reproduce naturally because they do not bear fruit.

In other words, the Somei-Yoshino planted today were created by grafting by the planters who took the most beautiful blooming individuals and multiplied them.

In other words, they are cultivated cherry trees.

Someiyoshino is a clone


When trees are grafted, they are all genetically identical.

In other words, all cherry trees blooming in Japan are clones, and DNA analysis in 1995 proved that they have the same DNA.

Cherry trees all over Japan are the result of more than 200 years of effort by tree-planting artisans.

Clones bloom at the same time

Because they are clones, they bloom at the same time.
