    In Washington State Sam is rare and only seen as a pollinizer for Regina. Comparably speaking it is a very mediocre cherry.

    Tastes VERY super sweet, almost like candy. I loved it, but it was too sweet for my husband. We purchased a small box from the local farmers market in Traverse City on July 30. For those who don't already know, Traverse City is famous for their cherries and there are tons of different varieties grown and sold all over. Relatively speaking, the Sams was one of the sweetest I've ever had!
