This one is very unusual. A gs stripe Bicolour cocktail That gets a bright red blush while it’s still green then ripens to yellow on yellow stripe keeping the bright red blush.
Small indeterminate dwarf plant not micro.
Tastes very good
I really like this unusual ripening and hoping it comes through again in the F3. Generally a bicolour blushes after it ripens not before.
From the Venus cross.

Eight of my winter plants are still going in the greenhouse and Teresa still has a number of hers now outside blooming again and setting new fruits.
F3 seeds are started from the best of the F2 selections.
Small determinate dwarfs ( micros)

The Gwr potato leaf micro cherry from the gold pearl cross
The peach potato leaf micro cherry from the gold pearl cross

The gs yellow on red cherry regular leaf micro from the Venus cross
The gs green on yellow cherry regular leaf micro from the Venus cross
The large bicolour cocktail on a regular leaf micro from the Venus cross

The baby beefsteak shaped brick red on a potato leaf micro from the Aztek cross
The baby beefsteak shaped amber yellow on a potato leaf micro from the Aztek


Also the gs yellow on yellow striped cocktail and the unusual ripening gs bicolour cocktail each on small indeterminate dwarfs I am growing out as well. Other seeds filed away for future reference possibly.

F2’s still looking great and producing in the greenhouse now. f3’s on the go at Teresa’s in North Carolina and mine are ready to pot up here. Mine will take up residence In The greenhouse over the summer. Here’s another ripening from the mini beefsteaks on my Aztek cross.
Excellent Sweet flavour. It will be a nice amber colour at full ripe.

My breeding hobby truly is the most fun I’ve had in gardening .
Thank you for your encouragement and I encourage you to try it.
Think it through, have a goal in mind and make your plan.

The F3 is started showing lots of diversity.

There are albums under photos on my gardening page and I posted a short video yesterday regarding their progress so far.
All are welcome to like my page if you wish, it’s where I post most often.

Just fruit set so far. I have three plants in three different locations. I've had ripe fruit
from only small cherries this year. (looking back in photos about the same as last two
years).
Does look they will be earlier than most.
