Early Richmond is a tart cherry that produces heavy crops early in the season. It is vigorous, productive, and widely adaptable to a range of growing conditions.

Like other sour cherries, it is best in pies, juice, and preserves, but can also be enjoyed dehydrated or fresh.

Pollination: Self-fertile, but will produce better when grown to allow cross-pollination with other sour cherries.

Disease resistance: Sour cherries are generally free of disease problems – birds eating the fresh fruit are more of a problem than diseases.

Parentage: Known as Kentish across the Atlantic. Seems to be of unknown origin, but grown since at least the 17th century.

Rootstock: Krymsk 6.
