Santina

(13S-5-22 cv.) U.S. Plant Patent Pending

Santina is an early, black cherry from the Summerland, B.C. plant breeding program. It matures about eight days ahead of Bing with a sweeter flavor than other early dark cherries. It produces good sized fruit with oval shape and bright black skin and flesh. Despite being self-fruitful, Santina does not appear to overset. It is moderately rain tolerant, however, it cracks at the nose end when it does split.
