Thunderchild Flowering Crab
DArtagnan Sour Cherry

Thunderchild Flowering Crab is a hybrid crab apple known for its attractive and fragrant dark pink blossoms and deep purple mature leaves.

Tree farmers will find this hybrid appealing as a pollinator for other apples, while home growers will enjoy the red pome's ability to attract flocks of Cedar Waxwings in the early spring.

This species is reportedly resistant to fireblight.

The D'Artagnan Cherry is a cold-hardy sour cherry that produces small, sweet dark-red berries that are ready for harvest in early August. It is typically high-yielding and the berries are good for fresh eating, or in preserves and desserts. It is comparable to the Romance series cherries, but has a typically shorter form.

The D'Artagnan Cherry is from the new Musketeer Series from the University of Saskatchewan. Cross pollinates well with the Romance series such as the Romeo or Juliet sour cherry.
