Cupid Cherry Shrub
Cupid is a hardy deciduous hybrid shrub variety of Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of Dwarf Sour Cherries from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. Cupid produces the largest fruit of all the sour cherries which is dark/red and perfect for fresh eating. It tends to be a bit later than other varieties, most likely due to its size. Although sour is in their name, they can be surprisingly sweet when harvested at the right stage of ripeness. Grows well as a bushy hedge instead of pruning into a single-trunked tree. Hardy to zone 2 and is self fertile (but is more productive with a pollinator). Harvest in late August to early September. The shrub can mature at 6ft tall and 6ft wide.
