Balaton®

Balaton®

A late maturing tart cherry ripening about seven to ten days after Montmorency.  The fruit is large and very firm with a red juicy flesh.  The trees produce fruit with slightly larger pits than other tart cherry varieties, which may cause problems with commercial pitting operations.  This is a very high-quality tart cherry selection and is recommended for fresh markets, processing and the home garden.
