The finest of the pale guignes to follow Coe's Transparent (offered last season), Governor Wood was among the several cherries produced by amateur hybridizer and medical doctor Jared Kirtland of Cleveland, 1842. Named in commemoration of the 1850 election of Reuben Wood as governor of Ohio, whose political favor was enjoyed by Prof. Kirtland. Plump, well-rounded fruit, yellow marked with orange and red, melting and juicy flesh, sweet. A favorite of a century's worth of gardeners who have preserved this variety from the oblivion meant for lesser fruits. For two decades, Coe's Transparent has been available under this name at scion exchanges; The Arboreum Company alone offers the genuine article. Early - mid June. On Mahaleb.
