Carmine Jewel Dwarf Cherry Tree

Description
The best for Drying
Carmine Jewel has full sized purplish-red fruit with a balance of high sugars and a complement of acids, creating a rich flavor. Fruit has firmer flesh and less juice than Romeo so it lends itself better for making dried fruit. It is also a heavy yielder, loading up with 15+ pounds by its fourth year, and 20-30 pounds in its fifth year. Growing to only 6 1/2 ft. tall, this is a naturally dwarfed bush with full-sized fruit--much easier to maintain than typical cherries. Extremely cold hardiness and few problems from disease and pests make this beauty a breeze to grow and harvest. Abundant, white flowers and glossy green leaves allow it to double as an ornamental in your landscape in early spring. Self-pollinating. Zones 2-7.

  • 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.

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.
