“Cereza Amarilla” (Yellow Cherry) is one of the few cherries I can think of that has potato leaves. When I first read the name, I had to look twice as at first my eyes wanted to read “cerveza” rather than “cereza,” which would have given it the odd name of “Yellow Beer.” It makes a large, vigorous plant with truly loads of fruit. There are not too many tomatoes out there that give me loads of fruit in my climate, but this is one. The cherries are yellow, fat and large. I cannot locate the history, but it does have a Spanish name. One database states that it is a commercial variety, and if that is so, it is the only commercial cherry I know of with potato leaves (but then, I do not know all commercial varieties). I found two vendors offering seeds for Cereza Amarilla, and both were located in the Netherlands. At full ripeness the fruits are soft and meaty, sweet with a rather mild flavor. I am afraid my pictures do not do it justice, as I forgot to photograph this one until I was down to my last cluster, which had been sitting on my tray for some time, picked early due to the invasion of armyworms this season.
