Royal Crimson Cherry
Self-pollinating cherry that’s great for warmer winters!
Royal Crimson Cherries (Prunus avium ‘Royal Crimson’) are new on the home gardener scene and have many cherry-lovers jumping up and down with joy. You see, Royal Crimson has one of the lowest chill requirements of any cherry tree available on the market – only 150-300 hours of chill time needed.
This means that places that were previously unable to grow cherry trees that actually produced edible fruit are about to bust wide open with some of the sweet/tartest cherries on the market! We’re looking at you Southern California, and you Texas, and you, well, anyplace that doesn’t get that cold, but cold enough!
If you guys aren’t jumping for joy yet, then this might help – Royal Crimson doesn’t need a pollinator either! It is self-fertile so that you can have loads of fresh fruit even if you only have room for one tree! Hello urban gardener! (Also, if you’re one of the many Southerners who’ve tried Mini Royal or Royal Lee but they didn’t ‘take’ like you’d have liked, then you’ll be happy to know that Royal Crimson will pollinate both and give you more yield you had before!)
Don’t let warmer winters keep you from growing delicious cherries in your own backyard. Royal Crimson has opened the door to give you fresh fruit for life! Order yours from us today!
