Carmine Jewel Cherry
DArtagnan Sour Cherry

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 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.
