Arguably the earliest black cherry variety to ripen. Cropping heavily the dark red cherries also well sized. One real bonus of this variety is that the fruits ripen in successiongiving two or three pickings which is better than 'all coming at once' like many varieties.

Often recognised as Kentish Cherry, it was in fact bred in Bedfordshire by Thomas River in 1872. The confusion most probably arises as this was one of the most popular varieties of the many roadsidestalls along the A2 coastal road through Kent.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
