Valentine Cherry vs DArtagnan Sour Cherry

Prunus x kerrasis Valentine

Prunus cerasus dArtagnan

Valentine Cherry
DArtagnan Sour Cherry

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 D'Artagnan Cherry is a cold-hardy sour cherry that produces small, sweet dark-red berries that are ready for harvest in early August. It is typically high-yielding and the berries are good for fresh eating, or in preserves and desserts. It is comparable to the Romance series cherries, but has a typically shorter form.

The D'Artagnan Cherry is from the new Musketeer Series from the University of Saskatchewan. Cross pollinates well with the Romance series such as the Romeo or Juliet sour cherry.
