Hey There! I’m Rochelle Greayer. I’m a garden designer on TV and IRL. I’m also an author and entrepreneur who thinks she can save the world by teaching everyone a little something about landscape design.






Name That Cherry Tree?

unknown cherry

Any ideas what this is?  I am in love with the clusters and I am so hopeful that one of you can share with me the exact variety, and then I can research it to discover that it will grow beautifully in my soon to be private orchard and grape co-op and that then I can go and find a beautiful specimen at a great price that can arrive just in time for spring planting.  It’s a whole line of dominoes that need to fall but If I can string it together, I just know I will have garden nirvana and ultimately (some day) ‘to-die-for’ boozy cherries in my pantry that I promise to share with whoever can identify it.

  3. We are guessing Hartland or maybe Bing. Black Gold is a possibility but it’s not usually that productive….
    Best to ya.

  4. Also this from our nsy front desk: “… some poss. choices if this tree is a sweet cherry and planted in western Washington – ‘Sam’ which is jet black, Van black shiny black fruit,Angela large black or maybe Vandalay large black. The Washington Fruit Grower Assoc. may also be a good contact as they do fruit tasting demo’s and ID’s of fruits thru the growing/fruiting season”.
