Stella View larger

Stella

A hugely popular variety, again from a breeding program in south-west Canada 1968. Large fruit almost the size of a small plum, dark purple or black skin, succulent and sweet. Quite resistant to splitting when ripe. Self pollinating although having another variety will increase yield. Has a reputation for pollinating most other cherries, so a must-have variety. Ripens from mid December to late January slightly before Simone and Lapin.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
