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.

Golden Spice Pear produces delicious fruit and has other features that make it a striking accent tree. It is one of the few pears that successfully grows on the Canadian prairies. In late August, small, yellow pears with a slight red overlay will ripen and be ready for a variety of needs, including: fresh eating, canning, jams, and baking. They are slightly sweet with a crisp texture. Come fall, the green foliage transitions to orange, red, or burgundy, adding a burst of color to your yard.

Golden Spice Pear requires upkeep to ensure its survival and longevity. Regular pruning is recommended in late winter or early spring to maintain the oval shape and overall health of the tree. An additional pear or apple tree is required within 150 m (500’) for cross pollination and fruit production to occur.
