Prunus Skeena - Late Season

Description of Skeena Trees & Cherries:
A new, large, self fertile, dark, sweet cherry with a rich flavour. The flesh is perfect - very firm and juicy at the same time.
Skeena cherries were bred to be resistant to splitting.

These trees are "precocious" (they begin fruiting young), so if you buy a maiden sized tree & grow it as a wire trained fan, you will get fruit from it faster than other varieties.

Grown as a free standing tree, they are quite upright - perfect for keeping as a bush shape.

Characteristics of Skeena Trees:

  • Self fertile.
  • Pollination group D.
  • Heavy cropper.
  • Fruit are resistant to splitting.
  • Fruit fall easily from the tree when ripe.
  • Quite upright tree.
  • Crops in August.

Pollination Partners for Skeena Cherries:
Skeena will make fruit all by itself.
It is in pollination group D, so it can pollinate almost all the cherry trees we grow - any tree in group C,D or E of the cherry tree pollinating table.

Rootstocks:
Our Skeena cherry trees are all grown on "Colt" rootstocks.
Maximum height 4 metres.

Growing Skeena 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.

History & Parentage of Skeena:
Bred in Canada in 1997 by the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre.
