This is a F2 generation, which segregated out at 1 orange cherry, 1 pink cherry and 2 red cherries (out of 4 plants). (go to the discussion tab for more growout information)
  • Taste results (September 2008)
    • Plant 1: gold, mellow, not as juicy as the others; on the sweet side - earliest of the four plants.
    • Plant 2: pink, very nice, on the sweet side, juicy, smooth, worth growing again.
    • Plant 3: red, my least favourtie - little flavour, skins somewhat tough - latest of all.
    • Plant 4: red, another nice one - more on the acid side, juicy, nice depth, skins a bit tough.

indet., regular leaf relatively compact plants that shows slight variations. I grew 4 plants in 2009, along with F3 generation that I received from Denise Salmon.
F2 generation 
Grown in 2009. 4 plants, 3 out of which produced red large cherries, and one plant produced golden peach-colored, slightly flattened large cherries. Fruits from all the plants had very good to excellent flavor, sweet and tangy, and the peach-colored cherries had the best flavor, intense tangy with sweet undertone. See Sunny.
