Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Sun Surprise - sliced ripe fruit. 2008-09-09.


Compact determinate 3' tall plant with dark green regular foliage, heavy fruit set early in the season, rather cold-tolerant, yellow cherry fruit 0.3-0.5 oz, very good tart-sweet taste, surprising for yellow cherry. Perfect for containers and quite decorative. Ripe fruit cracked radially for me after a 3 days long rain shower, but the cracks healed quickly.
