Go Back Cherry Evans Bali

Prunus 'Evans'

Plant Type: Fruit Trees

The fruits are technically known as sour or tart cherries, which differentiates them from the sweet cherries that come available for fresh eating each summer. But this is a bit of a misnomer, because if left on the tree long enough, the fruits develop their sugars and become wonderfully delicious to snack right off the tree. And more importantly, the sweet cherries are of very limited use – it’s the tart cherries that make all the jams, jellies, sauces, pies, cakes, wines and jubilees. Evans cherry is a rather versatile plant to grow in the yard; it is relatively compact as trees go, maturing in the range of 10-15′ tall. It does best in heavier soils, but will tolerate a wide range of conditions.

Deep, dark red fruit 1″ in diameter and excellent for baking and fresh eating. The fruit is much sweeter than other sour cherries. Extremely hardy buds.
