A self-fertile tree (no pollinator required) that is naturally very vigorous; its size is kept under control by the dwarf rootstock. It is easy to grow, and produces attractive pink-white flowers in mid spring, and heavy crops of large, tasty, dark red cherries. The variety originates from Canada, as a cross between Van and Stella, developed by Dr Charles Lapins. A good pollinator for other cherries.
