Product information "Bush Cherry Romeo"

Due to its flavour, Romeo belongs to the bush cherry varieties, which are also and above all suitable for eating fresh. If Crimson Passion looks very sweet, Juliet scores with its sweetness and sourness, then Romeo is recommended as the mildest variety that appeals to almost everyone. With Romeo, you can do almost nothing wrong in the garden – with the name this comes as no surprise! In a planting with a range of plants or in a hedge planting of bush cherries (at a distance of 150 cm), Romeo is well-suited, as it ripens a month later than the earliest variety Carmine Jewel and also about two weeks after the other varieties (Juliet, Carmine Passion, Valentine).
Short description:

From the end of July, matures one month after Carmine Jewel.
Medium sized, approx. 4 g, 18-22° Brix, dark red to almost black (when ripe), very aromatic, mild; Romeo has a little less sweetness than Juliet and Crimson Passion, but also less sourness, so the mild impression comes about; the taste is similar to sweet cherries...
Very productive, one of the most productive varieties next to Valentine
Compact growing, 150-200 cm
Especially for enjoying fresh and also for processing
Self-fertile, can easily be pollinated by its own pollen; this bush cherry can be plant alone.
The much later ripening period makes it possible to harvest  bush cherries from the garden for up to 6 weeks. If you let the fruits hang a little longer and start to harvest the cherries just as they are ripening, which should also be done with the early varieties such as Carmine Jewel, the fruit season can last up to 2 months.
