- Soil RequirementsWell-drained, sandy loam soil, free of perennial weeds, pH of 6.5 - 8.0, organic matter levels between 2 - 3%.
- Growth RateModerate growth rate.
- PruningPrune in early Spring before the bush breaks dormancy. Cherry buds are either vegetative or floral. Usually the end bud and thin side buds are vegetative and most of the larger buds are floral. When pruning, do not cut off tips of branches because you might be removing the vegetative buds and will have nothing to make new shoots.
- PollinatorIt does not require a pollinator to produce fruit, but having another cherry (Nanking, sandcherry) nearby will increase productivity.
- CommentsSmooth deep crimson fruit does not split, small round pit with high flesh to pit ratio. Sweet- tart flavor with a BRIX of 14%. Developed at the University of Saskatchewan, bred for better fruit quality and flavor, increased cold hardiness, dwarf size plant that makes maintenance easier. Disease and insect pest pressure is low, good choice for organic production. Large petals, glossy green leaves, and colorful fruit allow Carmine Jewel to double as an ornamental.
- YieldApproximately 10 - 30 pounds per plant at maturity.
- Botanical NamePrunus fruticosa x Prunus cerasus 'Carmine Jewel'
