The biggest — and some say the best! This variety bears mouthwatering, 1¼" dark purple-red cherries that are rivaled only by Bing. Crack-resistant, even after heavy spring rains. The tree is a beautiful standout in any landscape during cherry blossom time. An excellent pollinator for other sweet cherries. Ripens in mid June. Best pollinator: another sweet cherry variety. A licensed variety of Cornell University. May be covered by U.S.P.P. #11107 or other patents.
