Sweet Spring Blooms and Tart Summer Fruit!

Nanking Cherry, Prunus tomentosa, has showy white flowers with a pink blush which covers the plant in early spring.  This is followed by tasty, edible, bright red fruit, great for jams and jelly. These 1/2" bright red fruit, which ripen in early July, are edible but a little tart for fresh eating.

Nanking Cherry is a large wide spreading shrub and can be pruned as a small tree. It grows 8-10 feet in height and 10-15 feet wide.

It is a great conservation plant with attractive soft green foliage. The plant works well as a mass planting or informal hedge.

Nanking Cherry is native to northern China and is very cold hardy. It requires a good, well-drained soil. Nanking Cherry is fairly drought tolerant and does best in full sun. It needs cross pollination to produce fruit, so purchase 2 Nanking’s to be sure of pollination.
