The Royal Ann or Royal Anne (also called Napoleon, Napoleon Bigarreau and Queen Anne) is a variety of cherry, similar in appearance and taste to the 'Rainier cherry'.[1]

In 1847, Henderson Lewelling brought 700 fruit trees of 'Napoleon Bigarreau' from Iowa to Oregon’s Willamette Valley to start a cherry orchard. Seth Lewelling joined his brother Henderson in 1850, he renamed the tree 'Royal Ann'. Seth later developed the 'Bing cherry'.[2]

It is both eaten fresh and used in making pies and Maraschino cherries.[3]
