Romeo Cherry

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. Thiessen saskatoons are one of the most productive saskatoons great in pies, preserves or eating fresh. However, they are most popular with u-pick operations because their height gets to about 16ft tall which is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Romeo Cherry is a hardy deciduous hybrid shrub variety of Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of dwarf sour cherries from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. It features dark red/black, flavourful fruit most suitable for fresh eating, processing, and juice production. Romeo Cherry is also suitable as an accent or landscape tree.
