Cupid 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. Cupid Cherry produces the largest fruit of all the sour cherries which is dark/red fruit and perfect for fresh eating but it tends to be a bit later than other varieties.

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.

Add Pawpaw to your rain garden today to enjoy the ornamental and tasty value this shrub has to offer.
