Almaden Duke Cherry

$59.99
SKU C715G

Prunus avium 'Almaden Duke'

A modern sweet/tart cherry in the heritage Duke style, it was provided to Raintree by Andy Mariani and discovered in the Almaden Valley near San Jose CA. Believed to be a sweeter sport of Mazzard with a delightful complex flavor. Later to ripen and worth the wait!

Low chill and partially self fertile. The tree can be maintained at 12' tall on dwarfing Gisela 5 rootstock, which produces a tree 50% of standard size and induces heavy early fruit production. 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. Can benefit from some afternoon shade in hotter summer zones.

USDA Zone: 4-10

Grow Height: 12' (Dwarf)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: July

Pollination: Partially Self Fertile
