Cherry, Danube (R) (MAHALEB)
Bright red and juicy best describe this early maturing tart cherry. It ripens a week ahead of Montmorency. Danube® has a sweeter flavor and higher sugar content than other tarts and can be eaten out of hand. The fruit is large with firm flesh that handles better than traditional tart varieties and picks with a clean stem scar.
Mahaleb: Performs in deep soils with good drainage. This rootstock is somewhat dwarfing, cold hardy and precocious. Deep rooted. Not recommended for heavy soils or areas with high water tables.
