[Autom. eng. transl.] Due to the fortunate geographical position, the ceraseti of the province of Bari, very rarely are affected by spring frosts. This explains the lack of any bibliographic indication about the damages they caused. The exceptional (at least for the area!) Frost of 7 March 2010, therefore provided the opportunity to study the effect of this event on the mortality of the sweet cherry blossom buds, depending on the cultivar and some other variables. Specific investigations (Roversi, 1980; Roversi, Ughini, 1995; Roversi, Rossi, 2003 a; Roversi, Rossi, 2003, b) conducted in Northern Italy on the occasion of late frost, have allowed to highlight how the genotype, the rootstock, l age of the plants, the type of fruit formation and the phenological stage, influenced the extent of the damage, expressed as the percentage of mortality of the flower buds. In particular, the effect of the genotype, that of the phenological stage and the height from the ground have always been significant, while the age of the plants and the type of fruit formation have never been.
