Description

An earlier ripening sweet dessert cherry, that is heavy-cropping, with fruits that are large becoming red black and of very good flavour. Merchant is one of the best early to ripen varieties. Bears clusters of beautiful white flowers in spring, and the tree has some resistance to canker and fruit splitting. Developed at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, and received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1995.This self-sterile Cherry is believed to have originated from Norfolk, UK in about 1970
