Prunus avium ‘Summer Sun’ is a hardy, resilient and reliable variety of sweet cherry tree cultivated in the UK. Originally passed over for other breeds the ‘Summer Sun’ cherry tree quickly became a staple of UK cherry trees thanks to its resistance to frost damage during harsher Springs, whereas other varieties may not fare as well.
