Surefire Pie Cherry
Save Liquid error (product-badge line 32): Computation results to '-Infinity'%
A surefire, easy picking choice for the backyard grower and U-Pick marketers. Because it is very late flowering, it evades and tolerates frosts and annually produces large crack resistant crops.
Both skin and flesh are fire engine red. Its high sugar content make it excellent for eating fresh. It ripens a week after Montmorency. So highly regarded, it is the first sour cherry introduced by the N.Y. Geneva Experiment station in 107 years. Patent pending. On Dwarf 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.
USDA Zone: 4-9
Grow Height: 12' (Dwarf)
Sun: Full Sun
Ripening Time: August
