Description: Meteor cherry is a genetically dwarf tree that reaches 8-10 feet tall. This self-pollinating cherry produces sour fruit 2-3 years after planting. The fruit are large and shiny red- the popular image of a cherry. Harvest the fruit for pies, sauces, and eating straight from the tree. For the best fruit production plant other cherries nearby, ensure good air circulation, and plant the trees in full sun.

This tree is extremely cold hardy, withstanding temperature -40°F and below! Meteor cherries should be pruned in the winter so the tree will produce new fruiting wood.
