Balaton Sour Cherry

Full Sun to Part Shade. Full Size on Mazzard, space 12′-16′ apart, large fruit, self fertile

I find sour cherries simply delightful to eat fresh off the tree, despite any reputation otherwise. If too tart for your taste buds, don’t fret; they can be put to a hundred other delicious uses in cooking, baking, drying, preserving, etc. Sour cherries are large and can be easily pitted with any version of standard cherry pitters. Sour cherries share the spotlight with pears as the easiest to produce of the traditional tree fruits in the Midwest without any sprays (though birds can be a problem, eating the crop as soon as it ripens). Sour cherries will even tolerate little to no pruning if that sounds like a daunting task to you. A sour cherry in bloom is a stunning sight, and has a nice natural growth form. Grafted onto Mazzard seedling rootstock, which does better in heavy wet soils than Mahaleb. gallon pot* $16 +tax

Carmine Jewel Sour Cherry

Full Sun to Part Shade. Bush form 6-8′ tall, space 5′-7′ apart, self fertile

August.  (dark red flesh and juice)  We are VERY excited about this newer offering.  It is a natural (non-GMO) hybrid cross between sour cherries and bush cherries, which gives it a very manageable size (6-8′ tall) and great disease and insect resistance. AND it is SWEET – great for fresh eating.  Very productive.  Fruit keeps well on the bush, provided you protect it from birds and neighborhood kids :).  Best flavor is reached a few weeks after the fruits turn red – they’re not really ripe until they are dark red-black.  Self fertile . .
