 Not really a cherry like you know them, but we love this bush! Tons of showy, white flowers with a pink blush, produced in early spring before leaves appear. Tasty, red 1/3" make excellent jams/jellies or may be eaten fresh. Wildlife also love the fruit, a great conservation plant.

 This variety has deep, dark red fruit about 1" in diameter.  The fruit is both excellent for baking and for fresh eating. It is much sweeter than other pie cherries. We like this variety as it has extremely hardy buds.
