Jubileum® Tart Cherry
Prunus cerasus 'Jubileum®'
Jubileum® Tart Cherry is an very early maturing, dark purplish-red tart cherry variety, ripening ten days before Montmorency. It is dark fleshed and excellent to start the season. It hangs very well on the tree, just getting sweeter and sweeter. Great for fresh eating or any use.
Jubileum® is another introduction by Dr. Amy Iazonni of Michigan State University. It's quality is so much different and better than Montmorency, one would think it is almost a sweet cherry, with a little tart flavor.
