Prunus fruticosa x Prunus cerasus 'Carmine Jewel'

Carmine Jewel is a revelation, combining the lusciousness of sweet cherries with the complex flavors of pie (or tart) cherries, and the easy-to-maintain, dwarf-growth habit of bush cherries. It's a hardy and beautiful addition to any landscape or home orchard.

Expect 15+ pounds of tasty cherries by year 4, and 20-30 pounds by year 5; this tree is easy care and self-fruitful. Also a great pollinizer for early-blooming varieties

healthy and alive

showed up a little smaller than expected bought 4 to 5 feet did not expect that to be counting the roots

Had hoped for shrub form

The Carmine Jewels arrived in excellent condition. I was disappointed to find them pruned to a single trunk tree form, not the lovely vase-shaped form that bifurcates into two trunks at a low height that I was familiar with. I had hoped for that shrubbier form because of how beautiful it is, and wanted that form to contrast with other single trunk trees in my various projects. In the future I'll get the Carmine Jewels from a place that lets them have their natural shrubbier form. Nevertheless, lovely trees.
