Cherry, Jubileum (R) (MAZZARD)
A sweeter tart cherry, Jubileum is used for both processing and fresh market. It is the earliest tart variety Van Well Nursery® grows, maturing five days before Danube® and a full week ahead of Montmorency. The fruit is dark mahogany, juicy, and can be left to hang on the tree to develop additional sugar. The tree is compact and spreading.
Mazzard: Fibrous root system makes Mazzard a good choice for wet and heavy soils. Mazzard is the most popular cherry rootstock grown in North America. It is generally more vigorous than Mahaleb, especially in poorer soils.
