Pacific Red an early-season red cherry. The cherries are sweet and quite large, and should be ripe in late June / early July in southern England.
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.
Early Red is susceptible to fruit splitting. This is caused by rain in June as the fruits are ripening. It is a serious problem for commercial growers, but perhaps not for the home orchard. It can be prevented by covering the tree to keep the rain off.
Pacific Red is self-fertile, and a good pollinator of other American cherry varieties such as Early Red and Nimba.
Most fruit trees grown in the UK need a long period of winter dormancy with cold temperatures from December to March, but Pacific Red has a "low chill" requirement - this means it will be productive even in a fairly mild winter.
