The earliest ripening of the bigarreaux, also earliest of the pale-colored cherries, Flamentiner was known and grown in the finer orchard collections of Europe since the XVIII century, when its first descriptions were published. Origin attributed to Flanders, then distributed through northern Germany - hence its name - it was an essential fruit variety on account of its earliness, and of outstanding quality regardless of season. Fruit pointed, skin yellow, boldly splashed in a flesh tone, yellow within, highly sweet, juicy; like all cherries, should not be picked in advance of full ripeness. Mid May. On Mahaleb.
