Carmine Jewel is a totally new kind of cherry, combining
the lusciousness of sweet cherries with the
complex flavors of pie or tart cherries and the easy-to-
maintain, dwarf-growth habit of bush cherries.
You'll never need (or want) another cherry!
Loads of large, wine-colored fruit cover this
6-ft. bush in August. Cherries have a small pit
and are exceptional for fresh eating, pies, preserves,
canning, freezing, wine and juice. With
yields of 15+ pounds by the fourth year, and
20-30 pounds in its fifth year, you are sure to have
enough fruit for all your favorite uses.
Not much bothers this tough but beautiful
shrub. Carmine Jewel is very easy to grow and maintain.
It is extremely cold-hardy and has very little pressure
from pests or disease. It can easily double as
an ornamental landscape feature with an attractive
growth habit, dense, rich green foliage and lovely
pink and white blossoms in the spring. As an added
bonus, you'll never have to worry about suckers
of inferior quality popping up—Carmine Jewel is
grown on its own roots, not grafted like most cherries.
Carmine Jewel exhibits hardiness into Zone
2b. Self-pollinating. Potted.
