Olibell (S) is a new sour cherry variety in the late ripening range. The fruits can be used for processing and fresh eating.
This sour cherry, which ripens shortly before 'Schattenmorelle', has a high to very high flowering density and tends to flower slightly earlier than its sister variety 'Lövöpetri (S)'. The very harmonious, spreading tree structure without tendency to blind wood is characteristic of
Olibell (S). The early and regularly high yields in combination with very good fruit qualities ensure the economic viability of this new variety. The good tree and foliage health convinces also.
