Joy Bush Cherry Plant - 3.25" Pot - Red Cherry Fruit in Late Summer
Gift wrapping Options available
Joy Bush Cherry was hybridized and developed by the late Elwyn Meader of Durham, New Hampshire. Dr. Meader wanted a Montmorency type cherry that would ripen late in the summer season to escape spring frost for the flowers. Bird damage was another reason for the late ripening cherries, because birds do not normally consume red fruits in the late summer. Now you can enjoy ripe cherries twice a year!
