Early Korvik

This cherry captivates by an exceptionally aromatic taste with a fine acidity, yet marvellously sweet with elegant wine aromas. Its large, heart-shaped fruit is eminently firm, juicy and dark red with tinting juice. Although the fruits ripen at the same time and harvesting in a single operation is possible, the fruits can remain on the tree for quite a long time and offer a long harvest time.
