Cherry ‘Somerset’


Inventor: , ,

‘Somerset’ is a sweet black cherry with exceptional crispness. As a result of ‘Somerset’s’ remarkable firmness, it has a much longer shelf-life for fresh sales than most other sweet cherries. ‘Somerset’ ripens its medium-large fruit in late mid-season. ‘Somerset’ is a heart shaped cherry with a medium to short stalk. Trees have moderate vigor, so less pruning and training time is required.
