'SPC207' (STARBLUSHTM): A NEW BLUSH SWEET CHERRY FROM SUMMERLAND
SPC207 (StarblushTM) is a large-fruited, self-fertile blush cherry that ripens later than Rainier, 13N0770 (StardustTM) or Lapins. The fruit is heart-shaped, with medium to long stems, and firm flesh. The trees are vigorous and somewhat upright in growth habit. In our tests SPC207 had low levels of natural (rain-induced) splitting. Crop levels are medium to high. Flavour is medium to good after storage and pitting is only slight. Bloom time of SPC207 is after Rainier but before 13N0770 (StardustTM). The cultivar is being released to extend the harvest season for blush sweet cherries.
