A vigorous tree which is upright at first but later spreading as it matures. The white flowers appear in mid-spring and these are followed by very large near-black cherries (darker than Stella) from mid July. It is a popular self-fertile sweet cherry - and the large fruit have a gorgeous flavour.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Lightly prune in summer to retain the shape and cut back any dead or diseased branches
