I have extra copies of ‘Black Pearl’™ sweet cherry scions. Cherry rootstocks and scions from good fruiting cultivars are much less common these days but a few nurseries do have some. For example Cummins has about 50 left of prunus mahaleb. I have not checked our locals in the west side of Washington. 

If any of you wish to graft your own cherry tree and like the characteristics of an early season crunchy cherry then it is available by posting who you are so that I can prioritize this offering for those that have made donations to this site. 

The following link shows the release of this cherry and proves it is not protected by any patents thus is legal to distribute;

‘Black Pearl’™ - (NY 8139)

I have a few others of 'Attica' and 'Coral Champagne' scions, however from what I have heard these latter two may have much less resistance to disease. 

There is a good pure yellow cherry that I had picked from a large fruiting cultivar from a sidewalk side of a fence. Possibly a detraction to birds that seek red. It's unknown virus status means no guarantees it remains a virus free cultivar like all the above are which actually originated from a long standing order 2 years long from Van wells nursery. The 'Yellow' will be either 'Starks Gold' or 'Nugent' (99% certain) and should not really cross into Oregon due to the lack of guarantee. I should check into patent rights first in case Nugent (NY 518) is protected.

Anyways. It's here for FREE as long as you know my first come service stipulations of distributions.

Rooney,  I've got an established Colt rootstock supporting a Stella that's refused my several attempts to add variety. I'd take another crack at it if you find you wind up with an extra Black Pearl scion to spare when you're distributing.
