This new low-chill multi grafted Cherry has 2 varieties ( Minnie Royal and Royal Lee ) grafted onto the same plant. Ideal for limited space and both varieties 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 California 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 flavour. Fruit begins to ripen in early November and holds well on the tree into December. 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, pollinated by Royal Lee."

Cherry 2 way - Minnie Royal - Royal Lee

Great results with my tree near Murwillumbah after 3 years and since. 100+ cherries last two years. Delicious Well worth growing if you can get a tree. Thought cherries would be ordinary but they're delicious. Takes 3 years before flowering on two grafts overlaps but been good last two seasons.

Fruiting this year in Western Sydney. Some splitting though, due to excess absorption of water through skin of fruit.
