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.
