Prunus avium ‘Regina’ – Sweet Cherry – 7 gallon
A popular modern sweet cherry variety, developed specifically to be resistant to the rain-induced fruit cracking that plagues backyard cherry growers in Europe and eastern North America. Deep-red skin and firm deep red flesh, with a good flavor. Developed in the 1950s at the Jork Fruit Experiment Station, Hanover, Germany. It was released in 1998, and is now widely grown in the USA and Europe. It is a cross between two other German cherry varieties, ‘Schneiders Spate Knorpelkirsche’ and ‘Rube’. Pollen Group II, a fairly unique group – pollinate with just about any other sweet cherry variety.
