Thunderchild Flowering Crab vs Cutie Pie Sour Cherry

Malus x adstringens Thunderchild

Prunus cerasus Cutie Pie


Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Cutie Pie 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 Cutie Pie Sour Cherry produces fruit that are sweeter than other sour cherry varieties. Good for fresh eating and for making jams and jellies. They are small in stature (shrub like) and multi stemmed, which makes for a good hedge.

They are cold hardy and are a hybrid of Mongolian and European sour cherries, produced by the University of Saskatchewan.

They have small, attractive, white flowers. Cutie Pie Sour Cherry trees are self pollinating and require moist, well-drained soil. For better yields, plant compatible cultivars such as the Romeo Cherry nearby.
