This is a reliable, dark red-fruited deciduous variety of cherry tree with a delicious, juicy taste. It is an excellent, self-fertile variety which produces an attractive display of white flowers in mid-spring. These are followed by an abundance of good quality, sweet tasting berries which are ready for harvesting in late July. Very easy to grow, it is an excellent start for those who a new to growing fruit trees.
It has a broadly upright growth habit and quickly matures into a large specimen spreading as it matures. As well as being self-fertile, it is also an excellent pollinator for other cherries which are not self-fertile.
Root Stock: Colt/GM9
Note: 2 year+ stock with established heads not 1 year maidens.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
