Regina™ York 57/201cv. Cherry on Mahaleb (Spring 2024)
A highly flavored, crack-resistant sweet cherry. Also known as York 57/201.
A vigorous and upright tree with good canker resistance, Regina™ is also cold hardy and crack resistant. Regina™ is a late-blooming sweet cherry that is not self-fertile. It belongs to Pollination Group II, and it can be paired with any mid-late blooming cherry that is not also in Group II. Benton®, Sweetheart, Sylvia, Stella, Sam, Stark's Gold, and Attika are among the recommended pollination partners.
Ripening late-season, the fruit is large, firm, sweet, and highly flavored. It has found success with commercial growers, often replacing Bing on account of its firmness and superior flavor.
Regina™ was bred at the Jork Fruit Experiment Station in Hannover, Germany. It is a cross of Schneiders Spate Knorpelkirsche and Rube.
