Ripens: December


An attractive pale fleshed cherry, with orange-red blush. The flavour is less intensely sugared and slightly more acidic than the purple fleshed varieties. An excellent flavour!


As an early fruiting variety, planting Napoleon with mid and late season cherries, can extend your fruit harvest period.


Napoleon is self-sterile and requires a suitable pollination partner

Pollination Partner: Rainier, Van, Stella, Blackboy


Mature tree height: 3.5 – 5.5 m depending on shape


Tree Care:

For best results plant in full sun in fertile, free draining soil, preferably a friable loam with good aeration.


If the soil is free draining, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, plant the tree so the top of the root ball is level with the soil line and back fill with a soil and compost mixture. If the soil is not free draining, plant the tree in a raised mound of soil and compost mix, to prevent water logging.


Water in well at planting, and water regularly, especially in dry spells.


Cherries are shallow rooted and young trees will benefit from being mulched. Apply mulch in a ring around the tree base, keeping clear of the trunk.
