White-fleshed cherries are said to be the sweetest of all. This new unique variety is a breakthrough in breeding and has already been winning awards. Traditionally white cherries have always needed pollination partners but this new variety is the first ever self fertile white cherry. The large, delicious fruits are ready to harvest around the end of July and can be used for eating or cooking - if you can resist them for that long! The plants we sell are around 1.2-1.5m tall and 2-3 years old at the moment and will usually start to produce fruit in their third or fourth year.

  • Garden care:
    When planting your cherry tree, prepare a hole up to three times the diameter of its root system. Fork over the base of the pit in readiness, incorporating plenty of organic matter into the backfill and planting hole. Avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil, trees should be planted out and staked as soon as they arrive. If you've ordered a bare root tree, soak the roots in a bucket of water for half an hour prior to planting, or if this is not possible, they can be heeled in temporarily, covering their roots with soil, or potted up. Protect from cold, drying winds. Apply a balanced fertiliser in early spring to support growth and fruiting. Lightly prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker, to retain an open ‘goblet’ shape and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
