Carmine Jewel Dwarf Cherry

Tastes Better than Any Other Cherry, Including Sweet Cherries

  • Ripens before other dwarf cherries
  • Richly color that goes through all the fruit
  • High balance of sugars & complement of acids
  • Up to 30 lbs. of fruit per plant
  • Hardy to -40 degrees F
Can't wait for cherry season? Carmine Jewell ripens before other dwarf cherries, so you can enjoy full-sized, purplish-red fruits sooner. Fruits have a high balance of sugars and a complement of acids, creating a rich flavor—and the rich, dark color goes through the entire fruit, giving maximum color to juice, ice cream and other recipes. Its firm flesh lends itself to making dried fruit. Carmine Jewel is a heavy yielder, loading up with 15+ lbs. by its fourth year, and 20-30 lbs. in its fifth year. Growing to only 6 1/2 ft. tall, this is a naturally dwarfed bush is easier to maintain than typical cherries. Extreme cold hardiness and few problems from disease and pests make this beauty a breeze to grow and harvest. Self-pollinating. Hardy to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Zones 2-7.

Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Prunus fruticosa x Prunus cerasus 'Carmine Jewel'
  • Height: 6 - 7 feet
  • Spacing: 5 - 7 feet
  • Depth: Same depth as in the nursery. Plant so the roots are below soil level.
  • Spread: 5 - 7 feet
  • Light Required: Full Sun
  • Pollinator: It does not require a pollinator to produce fruit, but having another cherry (Nanking, sandcherry) nearby will increase productivity.
  • Yield: Approximately 10 - 30 pounds per plant at maturity.
  • Foliage: Glossy green foliage, oval to obovate in shape, with pointed tips and serrated edges.
  • Blooms: Mid to late May
  • Fruit: 3.5 grams, 5/8 inch, deep crimson. Brix of 17. Possible reasons why the cherry flesh does not develop as it should on the whole tree: Cherries that do not get pollinated will sometimes stay on the trees and grow slightly but usually they fall off while o
  • Zone: 2-7
  • Form: Deciduous. Rounded shrub.
  • Flower Form: Flower is 1/2 inch, white or pinkish blossoms.
  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, sandy loam soil, free of perennial weeds, pH of 6.5 - 8.0, organic matter levels between 2 - 3%.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: Prune in early Spring before the bush breaks dormancy. Cherry buds are either vegetative or floral. Usually the end bud and thin side buds are vegetative and most of the larger buds are floral. When pruning, do not cut off tips of branches because you might be removing the vegetative buds and will have nothing to make new shoots.
  • Comments: Smooth deep crimson fruit does not split, small round pit with high flesh to pit ratio. Sweet- tart flavor with a BRIX of 14%. Developed at the University of Saskatchewan, bred for better fruit quality and flavor, increased cold hardiness, dwarf size plant that makes maintenance easier. Disease and insect pest pressure is low, good choice for organic production. Large petals, glossy green leaves, and colorful fruit allow Carmine Jewel to double as an ornamental.
