Prunus avium 'Nugent'

Clear, sunny yellow cherries are a rare treat, and Nugent is good as gold! Non-staining juice and less attractive to birds, it makes a great pollination partner for all other sweet cherries (except Van) due to its mid-season bloom period.  It ripens mid-to-late season, is productive and has an excellent, sweet, low-acid flavor. Developed at Cornell University, where it was known as NY 518; it's a particularly good choice for cold weather regions.

Disease resistant and widely adapted, Nugent resists bacterial canker and rain-induced cracking. Tree form is unusually broad, with wide crotch angles and almost drooping mature branching.
