Rivarone Early Cherry Variety

Besides the traditional plants growing in the family orchards and the most sought-after cultivars for production and trade, in the territory of Rivarone and, partly, in the adjacent territories of Montecastello and Bassignana, Rivarone Early Cherry variety is cultivated: a heart cherry whose adjective "early" is given to the fact that it ripens in mid-May.
It is a medium-size plant, with big, elliptical, and serrate leaves; the fruits - round and smaller - have a dark red color and a soft but rather compact pulp. Although the origins are not certain, the variety has been probably obtained from the seeds and selected on the spot. These cherries are sold when they are fresh and promoted during the traditional Cherry Festival held in May.
