Variety: Dark Sweet Cherries



  • 4045 regular/red/black

Variety Overview

Though bings are the most well-known dark sweet cherry, other varieties developed over the years have lengthened the season, and dark sweets are now typically available from late May through mid-August. They are round to heart-shaped, firm, glossy red to dark red, with green stems. They have dark red flesh that's sweet and juicy, with a slight tang, and a central pit, or seed.
