Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Nikolaev Yellow Cherry - ripe fruit. 2014-08-06.


Indet. but relatively compact sprawling regular leaf plants. Fruits are cherry size, about 1 inch in diameter, slightly oval, yellow color. We liked the flavor better when fruits were picked just slightly under-ripe, as they have a very nice zing. They are milder and sweeter tasting when dead ripe. The earliest variety to turn color in our 2014 garden, we harvested ripe fruit in late June, which is super early for our region.
