no longer available Sweet Cherry (Prunus avium) CELESTE®

Celeste is a large dark red-black cherry with a small stone and good volume of juicy flesh. It has been one of the better early maturing varieties over a number of years. The flavour is excellent, very sweet, quite mild, and with a pleasant cherry aftertaste. Probably one of the best early-season cherries. It is an early cropper, giving you a decent yield of sinfully sweet cherries in mid June.
