The 'Van' cherry tree is a very productive variety which offers dark red fruits, firm, sweet and resistant to bursting. Cherries are delicious fresh and are also ideal for making jams and pastries. The harvest takes place from July to August. To ensure optimal fruiting, association with other varieties is recommended to ensure pollination of the flowers.
