Prunus virginiana var. demissa

Prunus cerasus Cutie Pie

Western Chokecherry
Cutie Pie Sour Cherry

Western Chokecherry is a shrub or small tree commonly used for farmstead and field windbreaks.

It produces white flowers in the spring and edible dark purple fruit that matures between September and October. Its cherries are great for making for making jams, jellies or wine, but are not very palatable for raw eating.

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.
