INDEX:  THE TART (SOUR) CHERRIES

Tart (Sour) Cherries.  A world class introduction by the University of Saskatchewan.  The Romance Series were released in 2004.  They were the result of a breeding program that began in the 1940's with our own Dr. Les Kerr.  These amazing plants are quickly finding a place in back yard gardens and commercial orchards throughout the Prairie Region. 
Landscape Plants As landscape plants, the cherries are unequalled.  Use them carefully in the front yard or along the lane because they will attract quests that may not always be welcome!   First Hardy Tart Cherries
  • Evans
  • Sk Carmine Jewel

Romance Series

  • Valentine
  • Juliet
  • Romeo
  • Crimson Passion
  • Cupid
Cultural Requirements All the cherries are of easy culture and, with the exception of Evans, all appear to be perfectly hardy in Zone 2.  
Plants From Seed  are not recommended.  Plants from seed lack uniformity.  They frequently have hardiness issues, poor productivity, and uneven fruit ripening.  Always select plants that have been grown from cuttings or tissue culture.  
At the LITTLE TREE NURSERY, we have been offering the Cherry Plants since they were first introduced.  However, we have only been propagating them for only 2 years.  It's been a learning process.  Presently, we have all the varieties in 1 gallon pots.  In 2014, they will be priced at $22.95 each with a discount for orders of 10 or more.

Starting in 2015, we plan to have them available as liners in 2.5 inch pots.  Having already spent one winter outside, these plants will be ideal for field planting.  If you are planning a cherry orchard, we would be delighted to provide you with more details.
