Ripening time: mid – December to January

 

Large, dark-red cherries with juicy, sweet flesh. Similar in appearance to Lapin.

An ideal home garden variety, as trees produce consistently heavy crops. Relatively split resistant.

 

Early flowering, around the same time as Lapin. Forms lateral branches better than Lapin.

 

Pollination: Self-fertile, but will produce better when a pollination partner is present, such as; Morello, Napolean, Stella, Van

 

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.
