Juliet Cherry
Krazulya Pear

Juliet 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. It blooms earlier than the other Romance varieties, and produces highly desirable, delicious dark red fruit for production with high yields. Juliet Cherry is ideal as a landscape or accent 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.
