Anyone have experience growing Balaton cherry? My
family enjoyed picking Balaton at a friend's commercial
orchard a few years ago so I purchased one bare-root
from Stark Nursery.
After waiting 5 years for it to fruit, it finally bore very well
this year. The cherries are ok but not what I recall for
Balaton. They are juicy, yellow fleshed and very lite pink/red skin color.
The Balaton at my friend's orchard were almost purple
skin color, dark fleshed and quite sweet for a tart cherry.
I thought Balaton was a morello type cherry? Just wondering if I have been sent the wrong tree by Stark Nursery.
