Crimson Passion Cherry is a beautiful fruit producing bush rather then the usual cherry tree. It produces a large sweet fruit (6 grams) with a Brix of 22°. This is the variety offering the sweetest and one of the biggest fruit of all the hardy dwarf sour cherry trees developed by the University of Saskatchewan (SK). SK cultivars offer sweeter and bigger fruits than the traditional hardy cherry trees ‘Evans’ and ‘Montmorency’. However ‘Crimson Passion’ growth isn’t as vigorous as ‘Carmine Jewel’ so its yield is a little bit lower. Its stone (seed) is relatively easy to remove. It will begin making fruits after three years. Great for eating fresh or in baking. This easy to grow tree is self-fertile and highly ornamental.
