Stella Sweet CherryPrunus avium Midsummer. 2C-27-19 (Lambert x John Innes Sdlg. 2420) Summerland Res & Dev Ctr, British Columbia, 1968.
Hardy good-quality self-fertile sweet cherry. Large heart-shaped black-skinned fruit has juicy medium-firm black flesh.
May be a disappointment to sweet cherry aficionados from the Northwest but could be a dream come true for orchardists in the Northeast. The fruit buds are relatively tender, but we’ve received encouraging reports that the tree is doing well in Minnesota.
Upright spreading vigorous productive tree will grow to 25-30'. Self-pollinating, but yields may increase if planted with other varieties. Pollinates other sweet cherries. Z5. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
