Early Burlat Cherry
Prunus avium 'Early Burlat'
Why wait for the cherry season to start? Why not eat large, dark red, flavorful cherries from the tree a week or two before everyone else?
Early Burlat is moderately vigorous and spreading, reliably productive every year and also resistant to bacterial canker and to cracking. It is fast becoming a backyard favorite! On Gisela 5 rootstock.
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.
