This Sunburst cherry tree is grown on dwarf Gisele 5 stock which is compact and makes the smallest Cherry tree of all. Trees can be maintained at around 150cm’s in height with a similar spread, perhaps a little less if contained in a 20-24”” pot. The trees are easy to manage and easy to harvest with no ladders required and also easier to net against the birds; also suitable for fruit cages.
Currently the most popular variety for amateur growers. It was at the time of it’s release, the first sweet black cherry that was self fertile and it reamains a benchmark against which others in this class are measured.
The large, black, juicy fruits have a superb flavour and the crop is heavy. The growth habit is similar to Stella and is easy to manage. Ripening in early July, an ideal variety for garden culture. Good split resistance, very impressive yields can be achieved with this variety. The number one choice for a slef fertile black cherry tree.
