Sweet Georgia

Sweet Georgia is our most unusual cherry. You may see some people on the web saying that Seville Farm has Sour cherries or White cherries. The fact is we don't have either. We only have sweet red to mahogany cherries. But it is Sweet Georgia they are referring to. Before Sweet Georgia ripens it takes on a flavour very similar to sour cherries and a colour similar to White cherries. In an unripe state, the fruit has a mottled red and yellow appearance and the flesh is crunchy and very tangy. You will often see U-Pickers using this colourful cherry to decorate their box of red cherries. Once fully ripe however, Sweet Georgia becomes sweet, firm, juicy and dark red. This variety was developed by Robert Kruimink in Tasmania and was released in the year 2000. It came from a whole tree mutation of the variety known as Lapins. Due to this being a very new variety the cherry industry does not have much data on pollination and production. At Seville Farm all we can tell you is that we have rarely had a fully ripe cherry from this variety because they all get picked too quick!
