Bush Cherry (japonica x jacqumonti)

 

Exposure:  Full sun to light shade.

Zone 5. Soil:  Average well drained garden soil.

Growth Habit:  A small shrubby, fine textured bush cherry that gets 4 to 5 feet in height and width.

Landscape Uses:  Hedge, orchard, or foundation planting.  Plant two varieties for cross-pollination.

Edible Properties:  These delightful bush cherries produce tart cherry sized and flavored, firm bright red fruit 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: Two different varieties required for pollination. (They don’t have a gender in spite of their names)

Available varieties:

‘Jan’– fruit ripens in mid August to early September.

‘Joel’– fruit ripens in early to mid September.

‘Joy’– fruit ripens in mid to late September.

Size and price:  4” @ $12, 1 gal @ $20, 2 gal @ $25, 3 gal @ $30.00
