Sylvia is a recent cherry, developed in British Columbia, Canada, based on the varieties Sam and Van, and it was introduced in 1988. It crops mid-season, and in flavour it is similar to Stella. It is a partially self-fertile variety, and so it can produce fruit even when alone in the garden, though it will benefit from a pollination partner. The fruit is dark red in colour, sweet and juicy, delicious fresh, or made into jam or a pie.
