Golden Cherries

According to this article, the very first white cherries are due to arrive on supermarket shelves in the U.K.:

Farm's rare cherries to hit supermarket shelves (KentNews.co.uk)

Could this really be the first time in the U.K.? I haven't done enough cherry shopping there to know, but I see 'Rainier' white cherries in supermarkets in the U.S. with some regularity, and white cherries are hardly a new development: Thomas Jefferson and George Washington planted 'White Heart' cherries, and the 'Yellow Spanish' (possibly the same thing?) dates at least to the first century. The variety in this case is 'Merton Glory', which the story itself notes is easily 40 years old.

Also, granted, the incredibly weak dollar warps things a bit, but the £3.95 per 400 g is roughly eight times what I paid for 'Rainier' cherries at a local produce market a few weeks ago. Now I have to admit that I've never had 'Merton Glory', but I'm going to bet it's not eight times better than 'Rainier' (though Rainier is not always the best cherry out there, it's generally fairly decent).
