Carmine Jewel Cherry
Cutie Pie 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 Cutie Pie Sour Cherry produces fruit that are sweeter than other sour cherry varieties. Good for fresh eating and for making jams and jellies. They are small in stature (shrub like) and multi stemmed, which makes for a good hedge.

They are cold hardy and are a hybrid of Mongolian and European sour cherries, produced by the University of Saskatchewan.

They have small, attractive, white flowers. Cutie Pie Sour Cherry trees are self pollinating and require moist, well-drained soil. For better yields, plant compatible cultivars such as the Romeo Cherry nearby.
