Prunus cerasus "Kansas Sweet"

The delicious flavor of this selection is believed to come from a cross between a sweet cherry and a tart cherry. The rich, luscious red fruit is larger, firmer and sweeter than most pie cherries, but it has the undeniable tang and powerful cherry flavor that keeps pie cherries in high demand. With red skin, juice and flesh, its potent color also packs a powerful punch in preserves!

The beautiful, lush, upright tree grows to 10'-12' with thick, dark, oval leaves, making it a wonderful choice as an ornamental focal point in the edible landscape. Also considered low chill at only 300+ hours needed below 45F to reliably bloom and set fruit. On Gisela 5, a dwarfing rootstock, 50% of standard size, that induces heavy early fruit production. Trees can easily be maintained at 10 to 12 feet tall. Gisela 5 is more forgiving of shallow soils and a better choice than the even more dwarfing Gisela 3 for people with enough room for this somewhat larger tree
