A wonderful new introduction with fruit that is excellent for
juicing and has good fresh eating and processing qualities. A
vigorous and hardy tree that is lovely as a garden accent or focal
point as well. Self-pollinating. The cherries come in clusters and
are medium sized. They are a more mild cherry and are ready to be
picked the second week in July.
Romeo Cherry features showy clusters of white flowers along the
branches in mid spring. It has green foliage throughout the
season. The glossy oval leaves turn yellow in fall. The indigo
fruits are held in abundance in spectacular clusters in mid
summer, which are excellent for cooking, baking and making jams
and jellies. This is a self-pollinating variety, so it doesn't
require a second plant nearby to set fruit. The smooth gray bark
is not particularly outstanding.
Taste this cherry in Mr. V's demonstration orchard.
