This improved Canada Red cherry was selected by Bailey Nurseries for its vigorous growth, straight trunk and uniform top. Foliage is a darker red, with a thicker leaf texture than regular Canada Red. Proper soil conditions are necessary for normal growth with this variety. Pay special attention to insure good drainage and aeration. The fruit is astringent but can be used in sauces and jellies. The fruit also attracts wildlife.
