Colney is a new large English black dessert cherry, with a good cherry flavour.
It was developed to be have resistance to bacterial canker, a common disease of cherries.
Sorry we have not been able to produce any trees of this variety this season.
We may still be able to propagate it to order for you. Please contact us for more details.
Colney is in flowering group 3. Colney is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other cherry trees.
Colney is not self-fertile so it needs a pollination partner tree nearby. Stella is the best choice.
Colney was developed in the 1980s at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK - the headquarters is located in the village of Colney on the outskirts of Norwich.
All our trees are grown in the UK.
