Prunus Avium 'Hedelfinger Riesenkirsche' is a strongly branched, upright tree with oval, toothed, dark green leaves, orange and red in autumn, and masses of simple, fragrant, white flowers blooming in April and May. Flowers are followed by heavy crops of large, firm, juicy, dark red to red-brown cherries, ready for harvesting in July. The fruits are sweet and sour with a spicy, almond-like, aroma. Prunus Avium 'Hedelfinger Riesenkirsche' can grow in a wide range of soils, as long as they are well-drained, but prefers moderately fertile, loose, moist, well-drained soils in full sun. It can withstand very low temperatures, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winter winds. Late frost may damage the flower buds. Fairly tolerant of wind. It is not self-fertile, requires an early-flowering pollinating partner. Cherry 'Hedelfinger Riesenkirsche' is a lovely cherry tree, regular and heavy cropper with an excellent fruit quality. Great for small cottage and urban gardens. The fruit is suitable for fresh consumption and preservation.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
