‘Sunburst’ Cherry Tree


A mass of sweet, burgundy coloured fruits, unusually large in shape.


‘Sunburst’ Cherry Tree yields an abundance of burgundy red fruits with a sweet taste.

These dark red cherries are distinctively large in shape and best enjoyed when picked straight off the tree.

In Spring, a mass of pretty white blossom makes a delightful, fragrant appearance in the garden.

Sunburst is available on different rootstocks to suit a variety of gardens. The rootstock controls the rate of growth so you can choose a rootstock suitable to the area you wish to plant in. The rootstock also ensures the tree fruits earlier than when grown on its own roots.

Gisela, a Semi-Dwarf variety, is suitable for small gardens and where space is limited. This rootstock will grow to a mature height up to 2.5m (8ft) after 10 years.

Colt, a Semi-Vigorous variety, is ideal for larger gardens and where space is no issue. Colt rootstock will grow to a mature height upwards of 3.5m (11ft) after 10 years.
