Early Red ™ is an early ripening variety with high firmness and sustainable full-bodied taste. Because of its shape and the short and fleshy stalk it is suitable for marketing in small packages.
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.
