White Gold cherry / Gisela 5
Red and yellow, midseason self fertile sweet cherry. Good size, great flavor, consistent heavy cropper. Resistant to cracking and to bacterial canker. Emperor Francis X Stella. Just released from NY experiment station. NY13688. 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.
