Valentine Cherry
Pink Candles Nanking 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 Pink Candles Nanking Cherry is a small deciduous cultivar of the Nanking Cherry with attractive pink flowers that then form edible fruit. The flowers emerge close to the branches resembling a pink candle, giving this cultivar its name. The berries are scarlet in colour with a sweet and slightly tart flavor. It fruits mid to late July, and the fruit size and flavor can vary greatly.

The Pink Candles Nanking Cherry is a good choice for use in hedges. It is closely related to plum trees so it can pollinate certain plum species.
