Valentine Cherry
Patterson Pride Plum

Valentine Cherry is a hardy deciduous shrub and hybrid variety of the University of Saskatchewan Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of dwarf sour cherries in 2004. This medium-sized self-pollinator produces tart, bright red fruits in large clusters in late summer that are perfect for jams, pies and jellies. Valentine Cherry is ideal as a landscape or orchard tree.

Due to declining demand, 2015 was the final year we grew Valentine Cherry.

Patterson Pride Plum is a fruit tree with weeping branches. This hybrid plant needs a wild plum tree for cross pollination before it can produce fruit. Patterson Pride's fruit is much larger and sweeter than other hardy plums, excellent for fresh eating, baking, jamming, and drying. A healthy tree grow ripe fruit in late summer and will not drop any fruit on the ground.
We recommend pairing Patterson Pride with Pembina Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.
