Romeo Hardy Cherry
Late season. Dark red, almost black, 4 gram fruit have good flavour and make dark red cherry pies and juice. 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 2 year old plants in 2½ inch pots. All are self-pollinating, but better results are obtained when two varieties are planted.
Please note: we can not ship Hardy Cherries to BC.

- 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.
