Nugent / Gisela 3 (AKA NY 518)

Birds eat cherries when they start to turn red and even the 'so called yellow cherries' like Rainier have at least a blush of red. However this variety is all yellow. It ripens in mid to late season, is productive and has an excellent flavor. This all yellow cherry is producing well in Western Washington. Plant it and the birds will cry fowl! On Gisela 3 rootstock. Needs a pollenizer. Recently known as NY 518.

Gisela 3 is the most dwarfing of the Gisela rootstocks making a tree that grows to only 8 to 10 feet tall. It tends to make a broad tree excellent for a small area. Its small size and early heavy bearing are great attributes but because of this the tree needs good growing conditions to thrive.  It is very precocious prompting the tree to bear heavily at an early age. It may require fruit thinning to maintain fruit size and avoid overbearing and having the tree stop growing. Regular irrigation is needed. It is not recommended for the heaviest bearing cultivars like Sweetheart. It is recommended that dormant pruning on all dwarf cherry trees be done in late winter before bloom time which reduces the chance of bacterial canker infestations.
