Prunus fruticosa Evans
(new stock expected: fall of 2018)
Evans cherry is an Alberta-developed cold hardy tree that has been thriving in the prairies for over 50 years. This highly productive self-pollinating tree requires little maintenance. The fruit is good for cooking or fresh eating when fully ripe. Evans cherry is an attractive tree, with white blossoms in spring and reddish-orange fruit that ripens to a dark burgundy.
Cherry trees do not like "wet feet" and are not tolerant of poor draining soil. So, select your planting options carefully.
