You’ll fall in love with this self-pollinating sweet juicer! 

Not every love story has to end as sad as poor Romeo’s – especially when it’s the love story between Romeo Dwarf Cherry Tree (Prunus Romeo) and you!

Romeo is a sweet/tart type of cherry, but not the kind that grows into a massive tree. It only grows 6 – 8 feet tall! It can fit into any garden space without any trouble. It looks like an ornamental shrub, so use it as such! Plant it in a border, bed or large container by the patio. It looks great along a fence or in your cutting garden. It even makes a great foundation shrub.

Romeo is newly available to home gardeners in the US and is destined to win over the hearts of cherry lovers everywhere. The deep crimson fruit comes after the tree has bloomed out in a profusion of classic white cherry blossoms in late spring. Even though the shrub is small, the fruit is full-sized, glossy and has sugar levels that are off the charts for tart cherries. It is exceptionally cold-hardy, too so it thrives further north that other cherries of its type.

The fruit has a high flesh-to-pit ratio which means more fruit per pound without as much weight from the fruit pits. (More juicy fruit for you!) Romeo is great to eat fresh out of hand, but try it for baking, canning, juicing and especially wine making!

Romeo is easy to care for and easy to harvest. Plant it with sweet Juliet Dwarf Cherry Tree for a true match made in heaven in your garden this year!
