Carmine Jewel Cherry
Pawpaw

Carmine Jewel Cherry is a hardy deciduous shrub and hybrid variety of the University of Saskatchewan Sour Cherry. It produces dark, black cherries with small pits that are good for pies and wine making. The hardiest of the dwarf sour cherry varieties, Carmine Jewel Cherry is a beautiful accent or landscape/orchard tree.

Carmine Jewel is often the first cherry ready in the summer.

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.
