Benton Sweet Cherry


Benton Sweet Cherry

Prunus avium Summer. PC7146-8 Stella x Beaulieu. WSU, 2003.

Highly flavorful large firm deep red cherry resembles Bing. Neighbors reported that the first three cherries on their little tree last summer had a sweet chin-dripping heavenly flavor that made them think of little plums dressed up in cherry suits. Less susceptible to cracking than other varieties. Flowers almost a week later than other sweet cherries, potentially missing late frosts. Vigorous upright and spreading growth. Self-pollinating. We can’t promise hardiness, but if you think you have a good spot for a sweet cherry, it might be worth a shot. Keep us posted! PPA. (expires in 2023). Z5. (2½-6' grafted bare-root trees)
