Nimba is a very early-season red cherry - ripening at the beginning of the sweet cherry season, around the end of June in southern UK. Fruit size is good for an early variety.
This is a commercial cherry variety that might be of interest to home orchard cherry enthusiasts. The trees are supplied in the commercial "knip" or "spindlebush" format.
Nimba is susceptible to fruit splitting caused by rain in June as the fruits are ripening. It can be prevented by covering the tree to keep the rain off, or just ignored since it is mainly a cosmetic problem which will only concern commercial growers.
Nimba is not self-fertile, the best pollinators are other American varieties like Pacific Red, and some of the Canadian self-fertile varieties.
Nimba has a "low chill" requirement - this means it does not require a long period of winter cold to be productive, and can tolerate even fairly mild winters - useful in areas where the climate is warming.
