Juliet™ Dwarf Cherry Tree

The Sweetest of the Bunch!

Our sweetest, tastiest dwarf cherry yet. Juliet™ can obtain up to a 20-brix sugar level (higher than sweet cherries) with a delightful complement of acidity, making for a rich, complex flavor. Large, meaty, deep-red cherries are our favorite for eating fresh, but are delicious when used for baking, jams and ice cream, and freeze beautifully.

Growing just 5-to 8- ft. tall, Juliet™ is a breeze to care for and harvest, yet still yields up to 25-lbs. of fruit. Plants are attractive incorporated into the landscape or planted in large containers. Abundant, white flowers, glossy green foliage and attractive bush habit allow it to double as an ornamental. Self-pollinating. Zones 2-7.

Did you know... you can enjoy juicy, sweet, sun-ripened cherries in a full size from this dwarf variety? You can...and you should!

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

I'm gardening elsewhere.
