Hartland cherry / Gisela 5 [SPRING]
A large, heavy bearing attractive dark red cherry. Rated among the most flavorful. Resitant to cracking and rot. Ripens and blooms mid season. From NY Experiment Station. A proven winner also at the WSU Mt. Vernon station Patent #11034. On Gisela 5 rootstock. Needs a pollenizer.
Gisela 5 is a dwarfing rootstock, 50% of standard size, that induces heavy early fruit production. Trees can be maintained at 10 to 12 feet tall. Gisela 5 is more forgiving of shallow soils and a better choice than the even more dwarfing Gisela 3 for people with enough room for this somewhat larger tree.
