The objective of this study was to examine the effect of coriander essential oil applied as an alternative method to increase fruit set of sweet cherry which is an important fruit for the Isparta region. In the trial, coriander essential oil was applied to the branches in blooming period and comparisons were made with branches on which essential oil was not applied (control). When average values are considered, it has been determined that the application increased fruit set from 27.86 to 53.28 in comparison with the control group.
