Prunus Bigarreau Napoleon - Mid Season

Description of Bigarreau Napoleon Trees & Fruit:
Bigarreau Napoleon cherries are known as Naps to their fans. These very big, firm cherries have a pale gold colour peeking out from a pretty, marbled red flush that develops where the fruit faces the sun.
The flavour is sweet and full bodied, but less sugary than darker sweet cherries.
They are considered to be white cherries, which refers to their pale flesh, not their skin.
