Life is a Bowl of Cherries

Carmine Jewel Cherries, That Is

Carmine Jewel Cherries picked today

I picked these lovely cherries today from my Carmine Jewel Cherry Tree. I wrote about my tree last year here. The Carmine Jewel (Prunus cerasus ‘SK Carmine Jewel’) was developed at the University of Saskatoon in Saskatchewan, Canada. A cross between Mongolian Cherry and the Tart Cherry, it’s hardy to zone 2a and does very well here in Edmonton. It’s fruit this year are sparse, but earlier than usual and juicy sweet. Mmm.
