Cherry Varieties

< 1 | 2 |
  1. Skeena™

    Ripens at about the same time or slightly later than Lapins
    This is the cherry that everyone is interested in and is currently planting! The flavor is strong and of high-quality. The fruit is large, similar in size, or slightly larger than Lapins, however, unlike Lapins, the fruit grows in relatively loose clusters. The tree is open and therefore, easier to grow than Lapins. Like Lapins, the tree is self-fertile and therefore, may have a tendency to overset, especially on Gisela rootstocks.

  2. Sweetheart

    Ripens mid-July
    A bright red, medium size, self-fertile cherry known for its sweet juicy flavor and beautiful shipping appearance. Resists cracking. Sweetheart is a cross of Van and Newstar.
  3. Tieton™ cv.'PC7144-6'

    Extraordinarily large in size, with excellent firmness and a mild sweet flavor. Tieton is an early-season mahogany red cherry, ripening one week before Bing. The impressive size, attractively glossy fruit, and thick green stems produce a visually stunning fruit for premium displays.
