Juliette Hardy Cherry
Early to mid season maturity. Dark red 5 gram fruit with excellent flavour. Beautiful, bright red cherries, ideal for home made cherry pie. These exciting new bush cherries, developed by the University of Saskatchewan after 50 years of breeding work, are perfect for the home gardener. They are very hardy (zone 3), disease resistant and their bush shape is very suitable for the garden. They are heavy yeilding, producing up to 10-15 kg per plant. With proper care they should begin to bear fruit in 3 years, with full maturity (7-8 feet) in 5-6 years. These are tart cherries, ideal for cooking, but are also sweet enough for fresh eating.
We ship 1 year old plants. All are self-pollinating, but better results are obtained when two varieties are planted.
Please note: we can not ship Hardy Cherries into BC.
As they are live plants we will hold fruit and berry orders until the appropriate planting time for your area (usually around mid April-early May). Requests for large orders should be made by mid-March.

- All varieties are self-pollinating, however better results are obtained when two varieties are planted. Bees will also help improve fruit set by moving pollen.
