Cherry Tree 'Summer Sun' 9L

  • Catalogue Code 1070-9399
  • Pack Contents: 1x 9L fruit tree

Cherry Summer Sun is a brilliant modern English variety. It has firm-soft flesh and a delicious flavour and a wonderful dark red colour to the skin.

This variety is one of the best available for the UK climate, it is a superb and consistent heavy cropper even if the summer weather is appalling. It us the UK's most reliable cropper.

If you only have space for one cherry then choose this one! Summer Sun will crop heavily, even in seasons when others fail.

Summer Sun is particularly suited to gardens as the tree is very compact and easily managed. The delicious cherries which ripen from red to almost black will be ready towards the end of July.

Our 9 litres trees are grown, protected and delivered in 'floppy pots' & polybags. The 'floppy pot' can easily be cut down the side with the tree then sliding out neatly into the prepared planting hole. The 'floppy pots' are also recyclable so you can help the environment once the tree has been planted.

In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.

The vast majority of the trees we ship have been pruned and will appear trimmed.
