Attika®
Attractive, very large red cherry, known for its size and crack resistance. Ripens just before Lapins. Blooms 4 to 5 days after Bing. Requires pollinizer. Such as Regina or Benton.

Benton

Excellent quality, large fruit with a dark red skin. Harvest the same as Bing or slightly later. Moderate resistance to rain cracking. Rated higher than Bing in taste and firmness. Self-fertile.

Bing
A large, firm, juicy fruit with red skin. The best pollen source is Van. Industry’s standard cherry.

 
 

Brooks
(USPP #6676)
Fruit is large and firm with high sugar content and skin has a pleasing color. Early harvest and susceptible to rain cracking. This is a good producer with low doubling in hot areas.

Chelan
(USPP #8545)
Large to medium-size fruit with dark red skin and medium red flesh (similar to Bing). Very precocious tree growth with an early harvest. Moderate resistance to rain cracking. The best pollenizer is Index. Chelan is known to have better winter hardiness than Bing. *Gisela rootstocks not recommended; may be incompatible with Mahaleb rootstock.

Large to medium-size fruit with dark red skin. Spreading and vigorous tree growth. Susceptible to rain cracking. Self-fertile, blooms early, and crops well. Chilling requirements are similar to Bing.

Lapins
Large and firm fruit with an exceptional, mouth-watering flavor and a dark red skin. Resistant to rain cracking and self-fertile.

With its large firm fruit, Rainier is considered a top quality “white cherry.” Skin is a golden-yellow with a red blush. Large, very productive tree and a good pollenizer. Susceptible to rain cracking.

 
 

Regina™
(USPP #11530)
Selection from Germany shown to be rain cracking resistant. Cherry is dark red, heart shaped and large. Blooms late and ripens between Skeena and Sweetheart. Van will not pollenize Regina.

Sandra Rose

Round, large, slightly compressed and moderately firm fruit with excellent flavor. The skin is dark red and tree growth is spreading. Productive with good tolerance to rain cracking. Self-fertile.

Santina

Selah™

Nice dark red cherry which is very large and ripening in Lapins time. It blooms with Bing and is self-fertile, making it a good pollenizer. A WSU release formerly known as Liberty Bell.
