Product Description

Nanking cherry is a medium to large, multi­-stemmed shrub from China that produces small, shiny, red berries with a juicy, true cherry flavor – it is a true bush cherry. It can produce in almost any growing condition, tolerates some shade, is very resistant to diseases and tolerates drought. Because it is much smaller than a full cherry tree, it is easier to protect the tasty fruit from hungry birds.
