Orange Bourbon

A variant of Bourbon that ripens to an orange color. While the cup quality is on par with Red Bourbon (and no discernable cup quality differences from the Red type), the added challenge to harvest ripe cherries is an issue. With red bourbon, determining ripe color distinct from unripe green cherry, is easier for the pickers. Found mainly in El Salvador. Bourbon for the full definition of the cultivar.
