CHERRY - MINNIE ROYAL ( LOW-CHILL ) Prunus avium

Minnie Royal Cherry

This new Low chill multi-grafted Cherry has 2 varieties ( Minnie Royal and Royal Lee ) grafted on the same rootstock. Ideal for limited space and both varieites can cross pollinate each other.

These 2 new Low Chill Cherry varieties should make it possible to grow Cherries alongside subtropical fruits in warmer climates with only 400 chill hours.

According to Tom Spellman from Dave Wilsons Nursery in Californea these 2 cherry selections have proven to be winners.

"Southwestern fruit gardeners can finally celebrate the introductions of two new very-low-chill sweet cherries. Minnie Royal and its companion Royal Lee have proven themselves to be low chill adaptable. In fact, they may not require any chill at all. Minnie Royal is a medium to large size red cherry with a firm texture and superior flavor. Fruit begins to ripen in early May and holds well on the tree into June. The tree is very productive and sets heavy crops in southern California. We estimate the chill requirement at 200 to 300 hours, but some have produced with less than 100 hours. A Zaiger introduction, pollenized by Royal Lee."
