Black Gold

An early-midseason self-fertile black. A hybrid of Stark Gold X Stella; a Cornell introduction. This selection is a late bloomer. Seven straight years it has set a heavy crop here in Geneva. It is self-fruitful and can be planted in solid blocks. It is also a very good pollenizer, probably a "universal" pollenizer. The fruit is shiny black and is resistant to cracking. Considerable tolerance to canker. Zone 4 sweet cherry when well taken care of, one planted in the Twin Cities by Bob Purvis has taken -30 F with no tip damage. Royalty of $1.25 added to base price.
