Prunus cerasus x avium 'Danube'
Danube is a Hungarian sweet-tart, morello-style cherry hybrid, known in its homeland as Erdi Bötermö. A favorite in Hungary for its sweeter flavor, Danube is equally good for pie making and fresh eating, an uncommon feature in tart cherry varieties. Introduced to the United States through University of Michigan, this fruit produces deep, wine-red juice.
Danube is partially self fertile and reaches its full potential with pollinizer, which should be chosen with care since Danube is a very early bloomer - Sweetheart is a good choice.
