Prunus x Carmine Jewel™ is a hybrid cherry cultivar from parents Prunus fruticosa and Prunus cerasus 'Carmine Jewel,' bred for its flavorful fruits, profuse fruit set (over 15 pounds on average after the first four years!), and low maintenance, dwarfed growth habit. Growing to only six to seven feet tall, Prunus x Carmine Jewel™ is a great fit for smaller spaces and foundations, as well as pollinator gardens, and open fields; Carmine Jewel™ is even compact enough for large container growing, and makes for a great balcony or porch plant!

Cherry blossoms are well-known for their fragrance, beauty, and attractiveness to pollinators, and Prunus x Carmine Jewel™ is no exception to the rule, with bountiful, early spring pink and white blossoms that are more tolerant of cold than many other cherry varieties. Flower turn to fruit by mid-summer, and mature trees can produce 20 to 30 pounds of fruit in a single season.

Prunus x Carmine Jewel™ is self-fruiting, but fruit yield can be increased by planting with other early blooming cherry cultivars like 'Royal Lee,' 'Minnie Royal,' or 'Almaden Duke.'

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
