The New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva and 
International Plant Management, Inc. have released two new processing 
cherry varieties. For long-time cherry growers, these varieties might 
have familiar names. Andersen, a stem-on cocktail cherry, is named 
after Dr. Robert Andersen, a cherry breeder in Geneva who retired last 
year. Andersen is a large, acidic cherry with a bright-pink blush and 
resistance to bacterial canker. It is very well-suited for stem-on 
shaker harvest. Meanwhile, Nugent is a yellow cherry with a spreading 
tree that bears very heavily. Its namesake is Jim Nugent, coordinator 
of Michigan State University’s Northwest Michigan Horticultural 
Research Station. The cherry is an excellent pollinator with good crack 
resistance. For more information on either of these cherries, call 
800-424-2765.
