Penny is a large firm black English cherry with an excellent flavour.
It is one of a number of new varieties which are very late ripening - mid to late August - making it a good choice for extending the fresh cherry season.

Penny is not self-fertile, so it needs a pollination partner and should not be planted as your only cherry tree - but any other self-fertile variety should be compatible. Commercial growers also use Kordia (another black cherry), Regina, Summer Sun, Skeena, Sweetheart, and Sunburst.
This variety is well-suited to the Gisela 5 rootstock.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Whilst much of the development of new cherry varieties over the last 5 decades has taken place in Canada, Penny was developed at East Malling Research in the UK by K. Tobutt, and released in 1998.
