Prunus cerasus ‘Surefire’

A surefire, easy-picking choice for the backyard grower and U-Pick marketers. Because it is very late flowering, it evades and tolerates frosts and annually produces large, crack-resistant crops.

Both skin and flesh are fire engine red. Its high sugar content make it excellent for eating fresh. It ripens a week after Montmorency. So highly regarded, it is the first sour cherry introduced by the N.Y. Geneva Experiment station in 107 years. On Dwarf 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.
