Description of Penny Trees & Cherries:
Dark, sweet cherries with lovely juicy flesh. Resistant to splitting in wet weather.
Characteristics of Penny Trees:
Pollination Partners for Penny Cherries:
Your trees must be pollinated to make fruit.
Penny can cross pollinate with almost all the cherry trees we grow - any tree in group C,D or E of the cherry tree pollinating table.
Our Penny cherry trees are grown on "Colt" rootstocks except for the bushes which are grown on Gisela 5 rootstocks. This is a fruitful but dwarfing rootstock - much smaller than Colt and makes them suitable for allotments and containers where space is limited.
Maximum height 4 metres. (2 metres on Gisela)
Growing Penny Cherry Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good.
The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
Cherry trees are targets for birds, so netting them is a good idea.
Only prune cherries in summer.
