Tehranivee Cherry/Gisela 3

A new mahogany colored self fertile sweet cherry with black-red juice. Tehranivee has excellent flavor as well as size, sweetness and firmness. It ripens at the end of July in Western Washington so it avoids cracking. Bred by famed Canadian researcher Gus Tehrani, it was released in 1996, from the Vineland Ontario Station and is a cross of Van and Stella. This beauty will be a winner for American home orchardists. Gisela 3 is the most dwarfing of the Gisela rootstocks making a tree that grows to only 8 to 10 feet tall. It tends to make a broad tree excellent for a small area. Its small size and early heavy bearing are great attributes but because of this the tree needs good growing conditions to thrive. It is very precocious prompting the tree to bear heavily at an early age. It may require fruit thinning to maintain fruit size and avoid overbearing and having the tree stop growing.Regular irrigation is needed. It is not recommended for the heaviest bearing cultivars like Sweetheart. It is recommended that dormant pruning on all dwarf cherry trees be done in late winter before bloom time which reduces the chance of bacterial canker infestations.
