Bush Cherries, Fall Ripening (Prunus japonica x jacquemontii)
Exposure: Full sun to light shade
Soil: Average well-drained garden soil.
Growth habits: A small, shrubby, fine-textured bush cherry that grows to 5 feet in height and width.
Landscape uses: Hedge, orchard, or foundation planting.
Edible properties: These delightful bush cherries produce average-sized, bright red cherries in late August through September. This offers growers a second season of cherry yields and the late-ripening cherries don't seem to be bothered by bird predation during their season of ripening.
Pollination: Plant two varieties for cross pollination. 'Joy' is the best pollinator. In spite of their names, they are not male and female plants.
Out of stock until fall 2013
