I was not at first impressed with the Hansen's Cherries. They were a little bitter at first. I let them ripen a bit more, and they were alright raw. Then, I pitted them, just with my thumb, very easy. I stuck them in the microwave enough to cook them, with a little sugar. Wow, they tasted like really sweet cherries after this. They are great with ice cream. From what I have seen, cooking with a little sugar makes a huge difference. I had cherries the second year after planting, and quite a few. Don't disregard this cherry because the unripe raw fruits are a bit bitter. The plant is hardy and from what I have seen even bugs stay away.

Very nice plant!

Living up here in NW Minnesota, tree cherries are only a dream. So we planted some Hansen's and some Nanking bush cherries. The Nanking were small and pretty useless for anything but jelly, and the taste was not great either. But the Hansen's were terrific. Not only did they grow better, their fruit really looked and tasted like tree cherries. The mice finally got ours so I'm ordering some more!

Hansen's Pie Cherrys
Reviewed By: Wayne Cunningham (Clovis, CA)
I planted 6 bushes 2 yrs ago and according to instructions they will fruit in the 2 yr. They did I pick about 2+ lbs of them and I plan on picking some more as they ripen. The taste is not what I exspected I was looking for something in the line of Black Cherries. The Hansen are juicy and small & for me I think they be better used for pies and jellies. Some of the berries are a little to tart for my taste. But that just me I am sure with a little sweeter & a preboil they make great pie fillings and or jams/jellies. Over all I give them 7 out of 10 on scale.

not doing well

I have had these bushes for several years now, they aren't doing well at all. The so called cherries that are suppose to be growing look like pits with very little cherry around them. I will be requesting a refund.

I bought 4 of this cherry bushes 2 died the other 2 I planted in the pots they were doing very well indeed. When I transplanted them they were not doing very good in the sand. I saw some blosoms but they just died off probably because they needed more chilling hours to blosom or there are not bees in our area.
