Very attractive fruits that ripen shortly before 'BELLISE™ Bedel' and convince with their size and balanced aroma.
A final evaluation of this variety and its susceptibility to bacterial canker is not possible yet because of the short testing period. Right now it is only recommended for best sites.
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.
If you are interested to plant CERASINA™-varieties outside of the Netherlands or Germany we need the authorisation of the license holder.
