Black Gold cherry/G5 [SPRING]
We love the flavor and productivity of this large, firm, deep red (almost black) disease resistant sweet cherry. It is late blooming and self fertile so its sets a big crop where others fail. From New York Fruit Testing. On Gisela 5 rootstock.
Gisela 5 is a dwarfing rootstock, 50% of standard size, that induces heavy early fruit production. Trees can be maintained at 10 to 12 feet tall. Gisela 5 is more forgiving of shallow soils and a better choice than the even more dwarfing Gisela 3 for people with enough room for this somewhat larger tree.
