Benton Sweet Cherry tree produces a super large, excellent quality, dark red cherry that ripens with Bing. Self-fertile.
Blooms with Bing, and crops very well. In consumer evaluations, it far outdistanced all other cherries, including Bing, for the mid-season ripening period.
This tree spreads naturally and has a good resistance to canker which is a huge issue in humid climates.
Crack resistance is high leaving you to worry less about rains near harvest.
