Also known as Ujfehertoi Furtos, these are among the best tasting sour cherries out there, though not well known in North America. As the name suggests, they come from Hungary where they were discovered as a chance seedling at a research station, and have become one of the most popular sour cherries in German speaking countries.

With a deep maroon-red colouring and rich juicy flesh, these cherries stand out. The flesh is aromatic, and with their unique balance of tang and surprising sweetness, these aren't just for cooking! Very suitable for fresh eating due to its low acidity. Vigorous tree, bearing from both annual growth and spurs. Self-pollinating, but can produce more reliably with another morello-type sour cherry nearby (such as North Star).
