Valentine 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.

Krazulya Pear was developed in Russia and is said to be one of the most delicious and hardiest pears. “Krazulya” - meaning “beauty” in Russian - is true to its name in that the pears are a luscious yellow with bright, red cheeks.

A peculiar feature of Krazulya Pear is that the pears can be eaten directly off the tree and don’t need time to ripen. The downside is that the pears only keep 1-2 weeks.

Krazulya Pear has been described as juicy and buttery, with a slight spice undertone. An additional pear tree is required within 150 m (500’) for cross pollination and fruit production to occur.
