A small bush cherry that is relatively new to the market. Developed at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, it is bred for better fruit quality and flavor, increased cold hardiness, dwarf size to make maintenance and care easier. It is classified as a sour cherry, but the flavor is a combination of sweet cherries and the tart robust flavor of pie cherries. Good for canning, freezing, fresh eating, drying, wine or juice making. Plus with its size, gentle weeping habit, spring bloom color and late summer fruit color, this beauty can double as an ornamental feature in the landscape.
Prune in late winter to early spring to desired shape.
This bush cherry is grown on its own rootstock, therefore no suckering to deal with. Yields 15 lbs. or more by the 4th year, 20-30 lbs or more by the 5th year.
