(fedco)

Bright scarlet roundish-oval fruit. Translucent bright yellow flesh and clear juice. Mildly acid flavor. Very good eating right off the tree. Also pies, canning, freezing. Easy to pit. Excellent dried. In coldest districts cropping has been inconsistent and hardiness questionable. Ripens mid-July in central Maine. Z4.



2022 - Healthy, no leaf issues (unlike other cherries). Not inclined to grow up so had to prune to encourage growth.


2021 - Little root-grafted Meteor did very well, apparently not minding the move last fall.


2020 - I moved last year's root grafted Meteor to a better spot and it continued healthy with moderate growth.


2019 - Bench side-grafted to a root clump of a Mazzard (Meteor) sucker. Planted with graft well buried. Short but healthy growth, 3 leaf clusters.
