BEST CHERRY OF 2016 & 2nd Place TOMATO FEST 2017!
No one could resist this sugar-sweet pearly pink sherbet darling. Not quite a grape-type, the fruits are borne in a profusion of clusters considerably earlier than others.
They do not crack easily and are seemingly disease resistant. Plants are polite, for a full-sized cherry, making this variety a good candidate for growing in a pot.
HISTORY: A recessive pink-fruited off-type of 'Honeydrop' selected by Rachel and Tevis Robertson-Goldberg from Crabapple Farm in Chesterfield, Massachusetts, who found it as a sport in their tomato patch. Robertson-Goldberg sent the seed to Fedco Seeds , who offered it commercially in 2011. More information can be found here. My original seed source was from a commercial packet of 'Honeydrop' from Fedco Seeds. Fedco has chosen to name the pink variant that they found 'Pink Princess'. I have chosen to honor the 'Honeydrop' heritage and will be calling my selection 'Pink Honeydrop'. There is a very small chance that an off-type will recur.
