Romeo Cherry
Klondike Amur Cherry

Romeo Cherry is a hardy deciduous hybrid shrub variety of Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of dwarf sour cherries from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. It features dark red/black, flavourful fruit most suitable for fresh eating, processing, and juice production. Romeo Cherry is also suitable as an accent or landscape tree.

The Klondike Amur Cherry is an attractive cultivar which features showy, peeling gold bark and textured oval leaves that turn bright yellow in fall. It blooms with fragrant white flowers in mid spring, and produces tiny, tart black berries through the summer. The Klondike Amur Cherry was bred to have improved stem strength and stronger branching.

This tree makes a great addition to urban gardens and commercial planting, and is immune to black knot.
