The Royal Ann tree naturally grows to be one of the smallest, most heavy-bearing sweet cherry trees known today! This makes it quite appealing to grow in pots, backyards, home orchards, and urban landscapes. Although the Royal Ann tree boasts compact growth it remains an incredibly heavy producer of blonde and red-flushed cherries! These delicious cherries bear a striking resemblance to Rainier fruit in both appearance and flavor. Although there are many similarities, there are also key differences which set Royal Ann apart and make it the preferable cultivar in many situations. Royal Ann cherries are softer, sweeter and more aromatic which makes them preferable to Rainier for fresh eating. Royal Ann also produces a larger crop of cherries at a younger age than most other sweet cherries, all while remaining more compact as well! This lovely sweet cherry tree has also been shown to perform superior to others in continental climates like the Midwest United States where summer and winter temperatures fluctuate greatly. Blonde, pink, red-blushed cherries combined with compact growth have led Royal Ann to be considered an "Urban" and Cold-Climate" Rainier Cherry tree!
