Lapins is a large dark red juicy cherry with a mild sweet/sharp flavour, and will appeal to those who like cherries but prefer a milder flavour.

Lapins is self-fertile and can be considered an improved Stella (which is one of its parents). It is well-regarded by commercial growers because it crops reliably and the fruit is large and of good quality.

It is also an excellent pollinator of many other sweet cherry varieties.

Growing and Training

Lapins grows with a characteristic habit - noticeably more upright than the spreading form of most cherries. It comes into bearing at an early age.

Lapins responds well to fruit thinning and/or measures to encourage growth and leaf production. This improves fruit quality and fruit size.

Lapins requires very little winter chilling hours and is therefore a good variety for warmer climates.
