Nanking Cherry  Prunus tomentosa

 

 

 

 

Nanking Cherry is a beautiful flowering Nanking Cherry shrub that produces edible fruit. The fruit of the Nanking cherry is commonly used for human consumption in pies and jellies. Nanking Cherry is good for wildlife plantings and windbreaks. Nanking cherry is moderate in its longevity, having moderate water requirements, and a low salt & alkali tolerance. Plant 6-8' apart for hedges and windbreaks. Nanking cherry is so tough that it will even grow under semiarid conditions and endure a snowless winter of -40F followed by a scathing summer six months later. Generally, the bushes grow about 8 feet high and wide and bear grape-size fruit with a refreshing flavor somewhere between sweet and tart. The pinkish white flowers and subsequent fruit are borne in such profusion as to practically hide the stems.
