Korean Bush Cherry Plant Information
The Korean Bush cherry is covered in fragrant white flowers in the spring. These bush cherries produce average-sized, bright red cherries in mid summer. The cherries are similar to Nanking cherries, but sweeter and less productive. The plants are self fertile although two plants increase fruiting.
The cherries are great for fresh eating and can be frozen for delicious winter snacks. They also make tasty juice, jelly, and are high in anthocyanins and other antioxidants. They can be used for making pies, but it would be labor intensive removing all of the pits from the small fruit.

These plants are hardy in zones 4 to 8. The Korean Bush Cherry a fine-textured bush cherry with fuzzy leaves that grows to 5-8 feet in height and width, likes full sun to part shade.
