Craig’s Crimson Cherry

IMG_9116

In 1999, I planted a bare-root Craig’s Crimson Cherry semi-dwarf fruit tree in our Willow Glen backyard. Our dog promptly bit it in half. Despite this rough start, the little tree is flourishing and just gave us a our annual large bowl of deliciously sweet red cherries.

The fruit a week ago – not quite ripe:

    Nice blog, nice pictures. How is the flavor of this cherry tree? Is it sweet? Do you get only 1 bowl yield a year?
