Great cherry for us, huge crops, great flavour, we had brown rot issues later in the season but the best black we grow

Kordia is an extremely high quality cherry that is somewhat resistant to cracking in the rain. It is, however, highly susceptible to spring frosts. It seems to be less susceptible to bacterial gummosis than Bing. It fruits prolifically if given adequate cross-pollination. Holds well on tree.

Heart shaped. Firm, excellent slightly spicy flavour. Good balance of sweetness and acidity.
