The fruit of the Corneilian Cherry has been cultivated and eaten by people for 7000 years. Easy to grow, just weed and water the young plant, prune for good structure, and harvest in midsummer. Cherries are tart straight up but it is wonderful for making jams, sorbets, and other value-added products. Fruits are easily harvested simply by shaking the branches. Yield 30-50 lbs per plant.

Resistant to Dogwood Anthracnose. No pest problems have been observed.
