Product Description

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! Latin Name: Prunus japonica x P.jacquemontii Site and Soil: Joy Bush likes 1/2 day to full sun and well-drained soil. Pollination Requirements: Cross pollination of this plant is not required; however it will result in heavier crops. Jan Bush Cherry is a good choice for pollination. Hardiness: Joy Bush Cherry is hardy to minus 30° F. Bearing Age: 2-3 years after planting Size at Maturity: 4 ft. in height x 4 ft. wide Bloom Time: Mid August to early September Ripening Time: Mid to late September Yield: 8-10 lbs. USDA Zone: 4.
