This cherry is very productive when grown in a sheltered situation. The fruit is large and sweet with wonderful flavour. Ripens in late July. Pruning should be minimal to prevent disease infection and is best carried out as light tipping of the current season's growth in early July to encourage fruit buds for the following year. This is a self fertile cherry, which will also help to pollinate most other varieties
It is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner
For better fruiting plant a compatible partner:
I have been hugely impressed by the quality of the trees and plants that I have purchased. They are extremely good value and are of the best quality that I have seen in a long time. I have already recommended Beechwood trees to my friends and really can not praise them highly enough.
Good root system
Delivered promptly. Very good root system and seems very healthy.
I am delighted to receive my Cherry tree a week or so earlier than anticipated. It looks quite sturdy and I have already planted it out in the garden. Hopefully, with some loving care it shall provide me with bountiful supplies of plump luscious cherries during the summer months in the years to come.Thank you very much to all concerned at Beechwood Nurseries.
