Penny is a large firm black cherry with a very good flavor. Its unique feature is the very late ripening - mid to late August - making it a good choice for extending the fresh cherry season.

Penny is not self-fertile, so it needs a pollination partner and should not be planted as your only cherry tree - but any other self-fertile variety should be compatible. It is well-suited to the Gisela 5 rootstock.
Penny was developed at East Malling Research, UK, and released in 1998.
