Nanking Cherry

Nanking Cherry

Prunus tomentosa 6-10' x same.

Broad dense highly ornamental fruiting shrub, becoming open and attractively irregular. One of the earliest flowering fruits every spring. Pink buds open to masses of fragrant white ¾" flowers. Deeply veined light green foliage with very fine fuzz (tomentum) lining each vein underneath.

Excellent hedge plant: an edible landscape crop that produces a lot of fruit that actually is edible! Variable ½" fruit in early summer ranges in flavor from mild to tart and in color from scarlet to clear red to pink and sometimes even white. Eat fresh or frozen. Excellent jelly and fruit leather. Said to make a good pie but pitting would require quite a bit of work. Covering plants with netting will deter birds from robbing your crop.

Prefers full sun in well-drained soil. Plant two or more for pollination. Native to China and Japan. Z2. (1-3' bare-root plants)
