Valentine Cherry vs Pawpaw

Prunus x kerrasis Valentine

Asimina triloba

Valentine Cherry
Pawpaw

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.

The Pawpaw fruits are edible and delicious with a banana-mango flavour, and can be eaten fresh or enjoyed in ice cream or baking. Wildlife are also known to enjoy the fruit. It is a small understory tree or large shrub found in wooded slopes, ravines and along streams. Often spreads by root suckering to form thickets. Cup shaped purple flowers form in the spring followed by yellow-green oblong fruits which turn a dark brown once mature.

Add Pawpaw to your rain garden today to enjoy the ornamental and tasty value this shrub has to offer.
