These are not true cherries, but are a very good delicious substitute. The fruit is deep red to purple color and 1 to 2 inches in size, with a full sweet cherry-like flavor. They grow on a very attractive evergreen shrub with smooth, glossy dark green leaves. It grows to about 6’.
Cold tolerance: After protecting the first winter, the tree is hardy to about 20 degrees. The first winter protect by covering with a blanket and protect the trunk by piling mulch as high as possible.
