Prunus aviumSummer. Chance seedling. Stark Bros Nursery intro, Louisiana, MO, about 1932. Also called Stark Gold or Stark Gold Sweet Cherry.
Medium-sized crack-resistant fruit has translucent golden-yellow skin and firm flesh of exceptionally good quality. Originally selected for maraschino cherry processing, but its hardiness and good taste made it an excellent choice for northern sweet-cherry growers. Very productive large tree. Ripens late. Developed or selected by CJ Thomas in Rulo, Nebraska, and subsequently released by Stark Bros. Grown commercially in some areas. Requires a second variety for pollination. Z4/5. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
