Some people love the luscious taste of fresh sweet cherries that melt in your mouth. Some people love the more complex taste of tart cherries that add a bit of pucker to the pie. But what if you find sweet cherries too sweet or tart cherries too tart? What if you love both? (We do!) Do you have to plant an orchard to satisfy both tastes?
We are happy to report that no, you don't! Not only do you not need to plant an orchard, you don't even need a big garden.
Carmine Jewel Dwarf Cherry combines the best of both sweet and tart cherries into one uber-delicious fruit, and it does it in an easy-care dwarf size that will fit perfectly into any garden. You won't ever need another cherry tree! (Our bet is that once you've tasted the bushels of Carmine Jewel that you get you won't ever even want another cherry tree!)
You'll get loads of exceptionally large, red-wine-colored cherries ripening in August. They have a small pit and are excellent in all cherry uses - eaten fresh, baked into pies or tarts, canned as preserves, squeezed for juice, fermented for wine and they even excel when frozen.
Trust us, you'll have loads to eat and loads to share. Carmine Jewel is known to yield 15+ pounds by its fourth year and by its fifth year can give you 20 - 30 pounds of fruit!
