Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Yellow Pygmy - fruit. 2007.


Very early, 50-55 days from transplant, compact dwarf plant with rugose foliage with smooth edges and not very serrated as typical regular leaf. Plants are small and sturdy dwarfs. Good set of yellow-orange slightly translucent small cherry fruits, 0.5" in diameter. Plants will set fruit again after ripening first set of fruits. Very good strong flavor, more acidic than sweet. Excellent cherry for growing in small containers. (very limited, 12 seeds / packet)
