Cherry, Sweet - Rainier
(Prunus avium 'Rainier') Height: 20- 30'
Many consider Rainier the best yellow cherry. White flowers emerge mid-spring. By mid-summer the very large, golden-yellow fruit shows its red blush. Exceptionally sweet fruit is ideal for fresh eating, canning or preserves. Requires another species of cherry with similar bloom time to cross-pollinate. Prefers full sun and moist, fertile, well-drained soil.
