Folks are always on the quest for an open-pollinated cherry that might rival the ubiquitous hybrid Sungold. With that in mind, this variety was bred here in Massachusetts — by Crabapple Farm in Chesterfield. There is a bit more variability of shape and color, with rich fruity sweetness in orange, gold and salmon-colored tones. Compared to Sungold, it is equally prolific, yet less acidic and less prone to cracking. Other growers also report that Honey Drop is more disease resistant and does not succumb to Early and Late Blight when other varieties do. We are excited to give this open-pollinated variety a try!
