Cherry

Log in to view prices

These cherries are bright red in color and taste subtlety sweet. Their flavor profile is very similar to the beloved Montmorency cherries. Along with eating right off the bush, these cherries are perfect for making jam, pie filling, or even juice. Grow these beautiful bushy shrubs that produce three seasons of intrigue: flowers in the spring, fruit in the summer, and autumnal hues in the fall.

Variety:

  • Joel (Zones 3-8)
  • Jan (Zone 4)
  • Barbados (Zones 9b-11)

Care Instructions

Place in a site which receives full to partial sun. Water the plant thoroughly and wait till the top 1-2 inches of soil gets dry before the next watering schedule. Cherry bushes require deep, well-drained soil. Fertilize using a low-nitrogen mix in early spring.
