Balaton® Tart Cherry
Prunus cerasus 'Balaton®'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Balaton® Tart Cherry is an interesting tart cherry with more flavor and "body" than Montmorency. It is well flavored and is firmer and not as juicy as Montmorency. It makes a great dried tart cherry and is good for fresh eating and pies too. It ripens a week or more later than Montmorency.
Balaton® was introduced into the US from Hungary where it has been a popular cherry for a long time. It is making inroads into the commercial tart cherry market at present.
