This selection was raised by the Rivers Nursery in Hertfordshire in the 1860s. Prunus Early Rivers is a good one to combine in the garden with Prunus avium Kordia to have an extended harvesting period of cherry fruit throughout the summer. Sweet succulent fruits are borne in June / July and a good display of spring white flower adds to the interest in the garden.Like all trees that produce edible fruits, this tree is VAT exempt making it good value for money!
Prunus domestica Early Rivers thrives on most free draining soils but grows best away from grass completion to enhance fruit size and taste. Its green leaves turn to yellow in the autumn before leaf fall. It forms rounded crown and is an ideal tree for a medium sized garden.
Mature height: 3-7m
