Prunus avium Black Gold™ – Sweet Cherry – 7-Gallon
A Cornell University introduction. Beautiful, glossy and sweet. This dark, red-fleshed sweet cherry is a hybrid of Stark® Gold™ and ‘Stella’. It has all the great traits of its parents: late blooming to avoid spring frosts, cold tolerance, self-pollinating, disease resistance, and heavy crops of heart-shaped fruit. Oh yes, they are also crack resistant. We consider BlackGold® along with Stark® Gold™ and ‘Kristin’ to be the best sweet cherry varieties for higher elevations of the Catskills. BlackGold® is the best choice if you only have room for one tree and is the best pollenizer if you are choosing more than one tree.
