Fruit, above medium size, oblate, very much flattened at both ends, and marked on one side with a deep suture. Skin, smooth and shining, of a fine clear red at first, but becoming of a dark red the longer it hangs. Stalk, very short and thick, from half an inch to an inch in length, and set in a deep cavity, which has a deep groove on one side of it, formed by the suture. Flesh, white, tender, very juicy, and briskly acid; but when allowed to hang and become perfectly ripe, it is more agreeably and pleasantly flavoured. Stone, medium sized, roundish, and adhering pretty closely to the flesh.
This variety is only fit for preserving; it ripens about the middle and end of July.
The tree is an indifferent bearer, and on that account is almost out of cultivation.
This cherry is by many called the Flemish, and by others the Kentish, but both of these are quite distinct varieties. Forsyth has evidently called it the Kentish on the authority of Duhamel, for the description he has given of that variety is the same as that of Duhatnel for Gros Gobet, and not of the true Kentish. Lindley very properly describes it separately from the Kentish, under the name of Montmorency, accompanied with Duhamel's synonyms.
