Nanking Cherry

Nanking Cherry is a small deciduous shrub known for its attractive white blossoms and edible fruit. Its dark red berries are excellent for pies, jellies, and even fresh eating. It is highly regarded as a shade-tolerant fruit. We often see it planted as a hedge on the north side of a house where few other plants will survive, let alone thrive. Expect fruit mid to late July. The fruit can vary in sweetness and size considerably. We often hear that people prefer it to sour cherries. Perhaps this is because Nanking Cherry is more closely related to plums. Extremely winter hardy

Shrub Cherry Planting & Pruning

Shrub cherries are bushes, not trees! They can be easily maintained as individual shrubs or as a hedgerow planting. For individual plants, plant at least 5′ apart in the landscape. For hedgerow plantings, 3′-5′ between plants and 12′-18′ between rows. Planting at least 1-3″ deeper than the pot is recommended to increase root development. Young plants may be planted horizontally below the surface to induce more suckering.

The majority of pruning should occur in early spring before the buds break dormancy, usually March-April. Damaged or diseased wood can be removed at any time during the season. It is important to never remove more than 25% of the total wood during a single season as it will reduce flowering and yields. These cherries should be regeneratively pruned by removing some of the oldest shoots to the ground every year to allow new shoots to take their place.
