History & Discovery
Bred by Ian Sturrock and Sons for Mr C.Golan of Plas Ty Coch, Caernafon. The object was to produce a cherry that would do well in the Welsh Climate, i.e. would be: Self-fertile, not prone to cracking in wet years, not suffer from bacterial cancker and ripen well in a relatively gloomy spring. Stella was crossed with Napaleon Bigarreau, which was then crossed with a Devon Mazzard. The trees have been tested along the banks of the Menai Straights for the past ten years.
Medium sized, sweet, red skinned cherry. Pinked fleshed and very juicy. Picking time (In North Wales) is in early August.
Pollination group: Self Fertile.

All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is in poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
Select your rootstock by using the paypal button corresponding to the eventual size of tree you desire. You will have the option to select the number of trees you wish to order on the Paypal page.
