‘PC7064-3’, trademarked as Selah®, is a new sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.) for fresh market production released from the Washington State University (WSU) Sweet Cherry Breeding Program. In the Pacific Northwest of the United States production areas, ‘PC7064-3’ is a late midseason cultivar, maturing 10 to 14 d after ‘Bing’, and is an alternative for the maturity period of the standard cultivar Lapins (Lane and Schmid, 1984). ‘PC7064-3’ is one of the largest-fruited selections tested in the WSU Sweet Cherry Breeding Program, routinely averaging 12 g per fruit. Although ‘PC7064-3’ is self-fertile, it is only moderately productive compared with traditional self-fertile cultivars (e.g., Lapins, Sweetheart).
