You'll Love This Sweet Sour Cherry

So you want to pick baskets of fresh cherries from your own garden, but you don't have the space for a cherry tree. Are you out of luck? Not at all! Juliet Cherry Tree (Prunus 'Juliet') will give you pound after pound of berries (up to 25 pounds after 5 years!) on a small shrub!

This gorgeous fruiting tree never gets out of bounds, staying small and yielding profusely. It fits into the garden just like a landscape shrub. Imagine the look on your neighbors face when your new foundation plant begins fruiting cherries! Its dwarf habit and love of sunshine make it excellent for beds, borders, fence lines and anywhere else you would normally grow a large ornamental shrub. It incorporates well into any landscape. It has glossy green foliage from spring to frost and abundant white flowers before the cherries set.

And these aren't just any cherries - these are the sweetest cherries that you've ever tasted! They are often scored the highest of all other sweet cherries in competitions - up to 20-brix sugar level. They have a rich, complex flavor in larger than average sized fruits (but not so large they are challenging to pit).

They are deep lipstick red and are great for fresh eating, baking, ice-cream and jams. They also freeze beautifully!

Easy to care for and easy to harvest. Juliet is destined for a happy ending in your own garden!

  • Sun loving, Self-Pollinating
  • Sweetest Cherries for the Home Garden

Sour Sweet Juliet Dwarf Cherry

Dr. Les Kerr of the University of Saskatchewan started a breeding program for a hybrid Sour Cherry in the 1940's. Working with the cold hardiness of Prunus fruiticosa and the good fruit quality of the Prunus cerasus.

These varieties were cold hardy and would perform well in the harsh Canadian climate. However, they lacked the higher sugar that the popular Sweet Cherry had. Dr. Kerr wanted to produce cold hardy fruit with a higher sugar content.

After 50 years of breeding the University of Saskatchewan released the Romance Series, including a pair of Sour-Sweet cherries, Romeo and Juliet. These are Sour Cherries with a high brix or sugar content.

Juliet is said to be the sweetest of the two with a brix rating of 16 to 18. This sugar is paired with sharp tartness, which make the Juliet a fresh eating Cherry. Juliet is also well-known as great pie Cherry and requires less sugar.

Juliet grows a bit faster and taller than the Romeo, but stays small enough for home gardeners to easily harvest the fruit.
