Our Feedback

A really excellent website--full of interesting information and those fruit varieties which are so hard to source. Perhaps you could find time to list varieties which prosper in the moister west of the country? R. Ramsey. Dorset

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.

  • First introduced in 1872, Bedfordshire, UK.
  • Self Sterile - requires a pollinator (another cherry).
  • Grown on Colt rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 8 - 12 feet (2.4 - 3.65 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).

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