Sonata™ is indeed a memorable cherry: very large, very firm with lustrous mahogany-to-black skin, a plump kidney shape, fine-grained texture, prominent blossom dimple and a well-balanced, sweet flavor. Harvest begins in the window between Bing and Lapins. The upright tree is self-fertile and vigorous. Sonata™ is a productive variety that bears well each year and shows a moderate susceptibility to natural cracking.
