Kordia, also known as Attika, is the darkest coloured – deep purplish-red – of all cherries. The fruit is large and tasty, and it is resistant to the problem of cherry fruit splitting.

The tree is resistant to bacterial canker, it crops heavily. It is self-sterile and so needs a pollinator. The tree likes rich soil with plenty of organic substances, and it should be planted in full sun.

Kordia is a chance seedling that was found in the Czech Republic.
