Description

Attractive and edible!

Tolerates a wide range of planting sites, including sandy hills, rocky slopes and lake shores. Bears young. Fruit is most enjoyable when it is allowed to ripen to a deep purple-black color on the bush. Introduced to the U.S. in 1892. Cold-hardy. Ripens in July. Self-pollinating, but plant two or more for larger crops. (Prunus tomentosa)
