awesome taste--extremely hardy--easy to protect from deer
Reviewed By: Cheryl (Medina, MN)
We have six of these, as well as six Nanking bush cherry. The Nanking get really leafy and set small bright red fruit, with a more acrid flavor---best for jam. These Hansen's are less leafy, putting more energy into the fruit which are much larger and deep red or burgundy, and an exquisite flavor! Hint: cover with chicken wire cages while they are young to protect from deer/bunnies/etc for the mice, a hardware cloth collar around bottom should suffice. No need for poisons! I'm ordering more of these and probably going to shred the Nankings.

hanson bush cherries

I planted three of them this spring. a rabbit cut one off about half way but it was still able to grow and is doing well. I have already picked about a pint of cherries off the other two. I didn't expect to get fruit until next year!

Alot more than expected

I bought these just to see what could happen and I definately dont regret it. I planted them spring 09 (may) and by October 09; 2 of them are 5ft tall and are doing great. The third has stayed low and has bushed out more than the others who have taken on a tree like look. I havnt seen any fruit yet though. Even so; the tall tree/shrub look of these are gorgeous.

We love these! The glossy foliage and the sweet white blossoms are in and of themselves are a treat. The cherries are smaller than I had expected, maybe 1/2 inch, but plentiful. I was dubious that the sticks we received would fill out but now they are some of the prettiest bushes in our yard. They are growing well despite poorer alkaline soil. The jelly we made from these cherries made a wonderful, rich wine colored jelly with a strong true cherry flavor. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for edible landscaping.

When I received the bushes in late April they looked like 2 foot long dead sticks with roots. I planted them anyway and in less than a month not only do they all have leaves but are BLOSSOMING! I canít wait to see how they produce.
