Colney Cherry Trees
Prunus Colney - Late Season
Description of Colney Trees & Fruit:
There aren't many late season, really dark sweet cherries.
Colney is as good as any of the others and it's disease resistant too, so that probably makes it the best!
Very sweet, very juicy and ripens to black with a ruby sheen.
Colney is not the most vigorous cherry tree, so it's good for smaller gardens & growing as a restricted fan on wires.
Please note that all our cherry trees are grown on colt rootstocks. This is a fruitful but dwarfing rootstock - much smaller than Colt and makes them suitable for allotments and containers where space is limited.

Growing Colney 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 very good idea.
Only prune cherry trees in Summer.
