Growing Calendar for Cherry Twin Tree - Napoleon Bigarreau & Variks Black
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Two great varieties that grow on one tree - what could be better.
Just plant one tree and you can choose to harvest two types of cherries; whether you want to eat them fresh off the tree or pick them for the perfect cherry pie.
Our fruit trees are expertly trained so they have strong main branches, ready to fruit heavily once planted and well-established. Our varieties are specially grafted onto roots that keep trees smaller for easier harvests, while maintaining impressive yields.
Both varieties ‘Variks Black’ and Napoleon ‘Bigarreau’ are late-season croppers, so flower at around the same time. This means that the two varieties provides pollen for each other so they produce fruits. The perfect duo pair.
Cherry ‘Variks Black’ – a luscious and sweet dark-skinned cherry variety, fruiting from late July to August. Very handsome fruits.
Cherry ‘Napoleon Bigarreau’ – attractive red to orange fruits have particularly sweet flesh and is noted for its heavy cropping.
✔ Two varieties grafted onto one stem
✔ An extended cropping season
✔ 2 different flavours from the same amount of space
✔ More room in your garden for other crops
✔ The two varieties pollinate each other
✔ Ideal for small plots, patios or kitchen gardens
✔ Grows well in large containers
