Carmine Jewel Dwarf Cherry
Tastes Better Than Any Other Cherry, Including Sweet Cherries!
(44 customer reviews)
Truly the perfect cherry, Carmine Jewel has large, gorgeous purplish-red fruit with a luscious balance of high sugars and a complement of acids, creating a rich flavor. Fruit has high flesh-to-pit ratio and is excellent for use in pies, preserves, juice, dried fruit and eating fresh. Yields up to 15+ pounds by its fourth year, and 20-30 pounds in its fifth year. Growing to only 6 1/2 ft. tall, this is a naturally dwarfed bush with full-sized fruit—much easier to maintain than typical cherries. Carmine Jewel is grown on its own roots, so you get no suckers of inferior quality root stock. Extreme cold hardiness and few problems from disease and pests make this beauty a breeze to grow. Abundant, white and pink flowers and glossy, green leaves allow it to double as an ornamental in your landscape in early spring.
Carmine Jewel Exhibits Hardiness into Zone 2b. However, due to the newness of this cultivar, regional testing has not been completed, so no data as to Southern adaptability is available. Remember our Lifetime Guarantee. Self-pollinating.
This item ships at the proper planting time for your region in both spring and fall.

Small but Sassy
Reviewed By: Jim Thoma (Kingsport, Tennessee)
Year 0 - received a six inch twig which I planted and lost in the grass until fall. Discovered an eighteen inch bush. Year 1 - removed the grass and watched it grow to six foot tall bush with about six side branches. Year 2 - hey I have cherry blossoms! I will purchase more if the cherries have the taste!

bought our carmine in 2011. planted it on the edge of our yard & struggled. We started a new berry bed this past summer & transplanted it on the south corner. the bush seems to be thriving. It even looks like it grew during our snowy season this winter. am looking forward to seeing its continual growth & hopefully fruitful production

Healthy plants but VERY small
Reviewed By: icebear (Zone 5b, Maine)
My 2 plants arrived the spring of 2012. Although quite healthy looking they were disappointingly small. Shortly after planting they lost most of their leaves, though new ones grew back by early summer. The price is rather high for such a small (about 10") plant. However, mine did seem to acclimate well over the summer i am a bit worried about them managing over their first winter. Time will tell!
