    An exceptional, self-fertile, sweet cherry with large dark red or black fruit. White flowers appear in mid-spring, followed by delicious, juicy cherries which are ready for picking in late July. It is a vigorous grower, starting with an upright habit, spreading as it matures. An early and prolific cropper, that will usually start to crop within 2 - 3 years. It also makes a good pollinator for other cherries.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
    Stone fruits like the plum should be pruned in the summer because they are prone to a disease called Silver Leaf which enters through cuts. If you prune in late summer, the sap is slowing but is still running fast enoughenough to seal up any wounds. Check and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
