About the Lapin :

The Lapin Cherry fruit is large and deep purple in color with lighter red flesh. The Lapin Cherry, (la-PAHN), the French word for "rabbit", is a big, beautiful, dark red cherry. These are some of the largest, juiciest cherries that grow on trees.

They are great for snacking, and so big, one cherry is a mouthful! The skin is bright in appearance and it is split resistant due to flexible skin. The Lapin is an excellent pollinator and is a heavy bearer.

The following three cherry varieties are good pollinators Rainier, Bing and Stella for the Lapin cherry.
