Wild Red & Black Sweet Cherry ECOS

Wild Red & Black Sweet Cherry
Wild Red & Black Sweet Cherry
This wild strain of the common pie cherry cross with sweet cherry called Gondouinii is mostly known from the variety Napoleon. The fruit can have a bit of a tang or tartness along with the normal sweetness of black cherry. The seedlings we offer are from the trees pictured (like almost all the images on our website-they are real!) from a nearby farm that allows us to collect seeds from this almost timber like grove of them. The trees are very vigorous and upright in growth easily averaging 2-3 ft. per year in good soil. Fruits produced often tend to be black 1/2 inch in size. Some trees yield a dark red fruit.  Even though not a grafted tree all the trees are highly productive. Great for fresh use, pies, jam and juice.
