Evaluation

A sweet cherry in the early ripening period with very good fruit size, high yield and high cracking resistance.
A final evaluation of this variety could not been made yet because of the short testing period.

Like in all early sweet cherry varieties strict stronger pruning prevents over cropping. The vitality of the trees supports the fruit quality regarding size, firmness and taste. It also encourages the early ripening of the fruits.
