Harvest an abundance of flavorful, tart cherry-like fruit in early summer, from beautiful dwarf trees. These seedlings will grow into wide, bushy 10-12 foot tall trees or can be planted 4-5 foot apart to make an edible hedge.
The 1/2 inch fruit can be eaten fresh or used in pies or jelly. This cherry relative is native to central Asia and is a popular fruiting plant in Russia.
It is tolerant of drought and needs a well drained soil. Plant two seedlings for pollination.
