Perfect for hedges in the home orchard! Heavy crops of short stemmed. 1/2″ red fruits with a tart, tangy flavor, somewhat like that of sour cherries. Holds well on the plant for 2-3 weeks after ripening. Great for pies, jams and jellies. Vigorous, rounded, deciduous shrub grows up to 10 feet. White or pink blossoms in the spring. Great intermediate windbreak filler. Attracts birds and other wildlife. Needs at least 12″ of rain annually.
3-4 feet tall plant, will grow up to 8 feet tall if unpruned.
Grown from seed, some variations in fruiting will occur. Self-fruitful; however, planting more than one will increase harvests.
