“Tumbling Tom Yellow, OP” is an open pollinated version of the hybrid “Tumbling Tom, F1.” This means that someone grew the hybrid and saved the seeds, repeating this growing and seed saving until it was determined stable. Who performed the dehybridization, I cannot find.
This is a golden yellow cherry that fruits and fruits until you are exhausted from the picking. It is a hanging basket variety, with branches that droop rather than grow vertically. It may also be grown in a pot on a stand or table or shelf, as I have done.
The cherries are very juicy and have a rather different flavor that is more sweet than tart. The skins are thick enough to prevent a good bit of cracking. I don’t see why this is not a more popular variety, as it truly is a workhorse in the realm of hanging basket varieties.
