Delicious, Early Cherries That Hold Up Well
Chelan Cherries are known for their deep red color and rich, juicy flavor, similar to the Bing Cherry. Compared to Bing cherries, though, your Chelan Cherry Tree fruits earlier and is more likely to avoid split or fused cherries!
Cherry trees grow taller than other fruit trees, and the Chelan Cherry can reach 15 to 30 feet at maturity. In spring, the medium-to-large tree turns out a brilliant display of white and pink flowers. Later, these abundant flowers transform into sweet, heart-shaped cherries with around 16 to 18 percent sugar content. In fact, the tree produces so many cherries, it sometimes needs help to stop overproduction.
If you’re searching for a cherry that looks and tastes like the Bing, the Chelan Cherry Tree is a smart alternative. This is because it doesn’t crack in rainy seasons or create double spurs (two fused cherries on the same stem) in hot weather. Otherwise, the two cherry tree varieties are similar in size and color.
Many Chelan Cherry fans eat their fruit straight from the tree, while others prize them for their sweet richness in pies and desserts. These cherries can also be dried, canned, or even turned into jam or preserves! With so many cherries each season, you can let your creativity take over.
