Royal Tioga Variety
Royal Tioga is a Californian variety spread in Europe by IPS. This variety of cherry is very interesting because it is self-fertile, the fruit is crunchy and slightly marbled wine red in color. Ripening of fruits in open field is Burlat time but cultivated in warm areas or in tunnel could be anticipated respect of Burlat till two weeks. This characteristic makes it very sensitive to cold returns but if grown under tunnels or in particularly suitable areas it can allow a significant advance of ripening compared to Burlat (up to 12-15 days before the first detachment). Fruits size is 28 mm and colouration in bright red. Royal Tioga is less sensitive to rain cracking respect of big parts of early varieties.
