Flanders. See Cluster.
Flemish.—Pomologists have fallen into great mistakes with regard to this cherry, particularly those who make it synonymous with Gros Gobet; others think it the same as the Kentish. The latter is nearer the truth; but the Kentish and Flemish are decidedly different. The fruit of the two could not be distinguished the one from the other; but the trees of the Flemish are less drooping than those of the Kentish, and the fruit is smaller, and about eight or ten days later. Anyone who examines the two varieties as they are grown in the Kentish orchards will see at once that the varieties are different.
Florence (Knevett's Bate Bigarreau).—Large and obtuse heart-shaped. Skin pale amber, marbled with red, and mottled with bright red where exposed. Stalk two inches long, slender, deeply set. Flesh yellowish, firm, very juicy, sweet, and rich. Beginning and middle of August.
