Nugent / Gisela 5 (AKA NY 518) [SPRING]
Birds eat cherries when they start to turn red and even the 'so called yellow cherries' like Rainier have at least a blush of red. However this variety is all yellow. It ripens in mid to late season, is productive and has an excellent flavor. This all yellow cherry is producing well in Western Washington. Plant it and the birds will cry fowl! On Gisela 5 rootstock. Needs a pollenizer. Recently known as NY 518.
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.
