Cupid Cherry
Klondike Amur 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 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.
