Cherry, Bing (GIS-12) (CE)
At a Glance: The standard by which all other varieties are judged, Bing continues as the leading dark sweet cherry grown in the Western United States. Bing is also the No. 1 commercial sweet cherry sold in North America. The fruit is dark mahogany from its glossy skin to its dense, juicy flesh. It is exceptionally large and flavorful. Bing does not pollenize Lambert or Royal Ann.
GIS-12: Gisela 12 is best considered as a semi-vigorous rootstock, but the extent of dwarfing effect is considerable. In most situations it produces a tree that is usually slightly more vigorous than Gisela 6, although with some varieties it may be more dwarfing and with others it can approach standard vigor. Apart from its uncertain size, Gisela 12 is a highly productive and precocious rootstock, self-supporting, compatible with all cherry varieties and tolerant of most soils.
