Prunus spp.
One of our most useful and popular fruits, Sweet Cherries are great fresh, dried, or frozen, and our Hungarian and Pie Cherry varieties make delicious baked goods and juice.
Black Republican
Prunus avium
A parent of Bing Cherry, this large, sweet, dark red fruit is prized for its intense Black Cherry flavor. Happy in the Northwest and other regions, Black Republican bears abundant crops and is still grown commercially. This special variety was introduced in 1860 by Seth Lewelling, one of two brothers who were largely responsible for founding Oregon’s nursery industry. A Quaker and an Abolitionist, Seth Lewelling named this fruit in honor of those called Black Republicans, members of the Republican Party who opposed slavery. Plant with another Sweet Cherry for cross pollination. 2102
Black Tartarian
Prunus avium
Considered one of the most flavorful cherries, Black Tartarian bears abundant crops of very dark red, juicy, sweet fruit. As a testimony to its happiness in our region, a Black Tartarian tree that was planted in Eugene, Oregon in 1860 is still alive and thriving. It may be the oldest and largest Sweet Cherry tree in the US and has been honored as a Heritage Tree. Plant with another Sweet Cherry for cross pollination. 2103
