Beautiful, glossy and sweet. This unique hybrid cross between Stark® Gold™ and Stella resulted in a hearty tree with all the great traits of its parents — late-blooming to avoid spring frosts, hardy fruit buds, and crack-resistant fruit. Bears heavy crops of deep red, heart-shaped cherries. Disease-resistant to brown rot, bacterial canker, and black knot. Developed in Geneva, New York, introduced circa 2001. Ripens in mid June. Self-pollinating. May be covered by U.S.P.P. #17301 or other patents. Ridgewood cultivar.
