Romeo™ Dwarf Cherry Tree

The Best for Making Juice!

Newly available in the US. Larger, sweeter, and juicier than Carmine Jewel but with the same great plant habit. You'll fall in love with this "sweet-talking" berry's deep crimson, full-sized, glossy fruit with incredible sugar levels for a tart cherry type. Grown for its exceptional cold-hardiness, dwarf stature, and high flesh-to-pit ratio. This means more fruit per pound with less weight from the pits. Yields up to 25 pounds of fruit per plant, providing plenty for baking, canning, wine making, and, of course, fresh eating. Self-pollinating. Zones 2-7.

Did you know...you can enjoy full-sized, juicy, sweet and sun-ripened cherries 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.
