Highbush Cranberry vs Valentine Cherry

Viburnum trilobum

Prunus cerasus x fruticosa Valentine

Highbush Cranberry
Valentine Cherry

Highbush Cranberry produces attractive white flowers in late June and bears edible fruit that matures to a bright red colour in the late summer.

This shrub, native to much of Canada, is fast growing, and its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce to serve with various proteins. Consider buying one for your next home landscaping project.

Valentine Cherry is a hardy deciduous shrub and hybrid variety of the University of Saskatchewan Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of dwarf sour cherries in 2004. This medium-sized self-pollinator produces tart, bright red fruits in large clusters in late summer that are perfect for jams, pies and jellies. Valentine Cherry is ideal as a landscape or orchard tree.

Due to declining demand, 2015 will be the final year for the Valentine Cherry.
