Everbearing Tree Fruit


The Gardener's Monthly and Horticulturist, 28: 366 (Dec 1886)
Cherry, Saunders' Everbearing. — A market grower wants a fruit that will bear all at once, so that without making "two bites at a cherry" he may get the whole into his baskets at one or two pickings. But the most useful amateur fruit is the one that will bear in succession and not all at once. This variety matures continuously from the 10th of July to the last of September, though the flowering, like the ordinary cherries, open all at one time. It is from a year-old seedling imported from France by Mr. F. B. Wallis, and introduced by Mr. C. O. Saunders, of Everett, Mass. A beautiful colored plate appears in the Horticultural Art Journal for October.

RUSSELL, Kan. July 27 — An everbearing cherry tree is the valuable possession of Mrs Oliver Summer. The freak tree has an abundance of ripe fruit on it, has green fruit, and is still blossoming. From present prospects the tree will bear cherries well up into the fall.

Of those varieties marked by an asterisk (*) no material has been seen by the writer, and such varieties have been referred to the species on the basis of other considerations than a study of the material. It is believed, however, that the disposition is reasonably correct and wherever there has been doubt as to the correct disposition of a variety it is so indicated or the name of the species is omitted entirely.

Everbearing. This is certainly a fine plum. The fruit is small, but deliciously flavored and very sweet, and is produced in great abundance. Should be gathered under the tree (not picked off) every morning. Begins to ripen about the middle of June and continues to about the middle of August, the last fruit being as good as the first.


Berckman's 'Everbearing Peach'

Comal Springs Nursery p. 12 (1905-06)
Everbearing Originator says: "The fruit begins to ripen about the 15th of July, and continues to ripen until 15th of September. Blooms at intervals, consequently no danger of frost killing entire crop of fruit." [CybeRose note: I assume this is the same as Berckman's Everbearing Peach. It is useful to know that it blooms at intervals, unlike the Saunders' Everbearing cherry that blooms all at once, then ripens over more than two months.].
