Prunus avium 'White Gold'

White Gold's good size, great flavor, consistently heavy crops and resistance to cracking and to bacterial canker make the perfect substitute for Rainer cherries in areas where weather conditions are too wet and pollination options are limited.

Ask a Question
  • Would a mini dwarf do well in a pot? Assuming you up-pot it incrementally as needed?

    Yes that can work well. A half wine barrel is 27 gallons for reference and a great option.

  • What is the White Gold Cherry’s preferred pruning style?

    White Gold can be pruned a number of ways. You should stick with the preffered style for your area. Generally cherries do best with thin crowns that promote a lot of light penetration and air flow.

  • What are the chill hours for this tree?

    800+ chilling hours

White gold cherry

Received in great shape. Tree took off when planted and is doing great.

Tree arrived in great shape and it is now in buds opening phase. This nursery does excellent limb shaping so that the tree is perfect as delivered.

In the ground & ready to grow!

Received my White Gold Cherry tree on-time & in great shape. The Youtube videos were very helpful. Buds are getting ready to open up. I am planning to remove (prune) the buds on the new trunk, which I assume was a branch before grafting. Looking forward to years of great fruit from this tree, along with my two-year-old 4x1 Fruit Cocktail tree (arrow). : )

Just received my White Gold Cherry tree. It was packed perfectly and looked extremely healthy. I planted it in a very large container. Can't wait for it to leaf out!

Dwarf cherry

Tree showed up well packaged, put in place of a hardired nectarine that was ordered and planted two years earlier. Nectarine had bad leaf curl issues. Hope the cherry will produce for many years!
