Prune 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

- CommentsYou'll fall in love with this "sweet-talking" berry's deep crimson, full-sized, glossy fruit with incredible sugar levels for a tart cherry type. Grown for its exceptional cold-hardiness, dwarf stature, and high flesh-to-pit ratio. This means more fruit per pound with less weight from the pits.
- YieldUp to 25 pounds of fruit per plant at maturity.
- Botanical NamePrunus fruticosa x Prunus cerasus 'Romeo'
- DepthPlant so that the roots are below soil level.
