Cupid Cherry
Pink Candles Nanking Cherry

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 Pink Candles Nanking Cherry is a small deciduous cultivar of the Nanking Cherry with attractive pink flowers that then form edible fruit. The flowers emerge close to the branches resembling a pink candle, giving this cultivar its name. The berries are scarlet in colour with a sweet and slightly tart flavor. It fruits mid to late July, and the fruit size and flavor can vary greatly.

The Pink Candles Nanking Cherry is a good choice for use in hedges. It is closely related to plum trees so it can pollinate certain plum species.
