Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Sweet Thing 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 Sweet Thing Cherry is a sour cherry hybrid of Carmine Jewel and Erdi Jubileum that produces sweeter and firmer berries than other cold-hardy sour cherry varieties. The berries are a deep burgundy red and quite sweet, making them excellent for fresh eating and also desserts, jams and jellies.

The Sweet Thing Cherry, or the Jubileum, is highly suckering so it can establish your hedge quickly, or fill in gaps.
